UT Health San Antonio
UT Health San Antonio, located in the northern suburbs of the city of San Antonio, is one of the 15 components in The University of Texas System and is composed of five interactive schools: The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Dentistry, Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine, School of Health Professions and School of Nursing. The UT Health environment allows a unique opportunity for the more than 2,800 students enrolled in more than 60 programs to experience a high quality combination of clinical and basic sciences. Away from the main campus is the Texas Research Park, which currently houses three research buildings; (1) Sam and Ann Barshop Institute for Longevity & Aging Studies; (2) South Texas Centers for Biology in Medicine; and (3) The Institute of Biotechnology.
UT Health San Antonio is relatively young, having been founded in 1968, but it has already established itself as a premier educational and research institution. Research dollars to UT Health San Antonio have grown from $41 million 18 years ago to $171 million in 2007 with $84 million coming from the National Institutes of Health. UT Health San Antonio scientists carry out major studies in all areas of medicine and health care.
