University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB)

Public academic health science center in Texas

For more than 130 years, UTMB has stood with Texas—training today and tomorrow's health care workforce; working to better understand and treat illness and injury; providing care of for Texas families; and innovating new ways to improve health.

UTMB opened in 1891 as the nation’s first public medical school and hospital under unified leadership—already a pioneer. What began as one hospital and medical school building in Galveston is now a major academic health sciences center of global influence; a world-renowned research enterprise; and a growing, comprehensive health system with hospitals on four campuses and a network of clinics. UTMB has a $3.3 billion annual statewide economic impact, in terms of business volume, personal income and durable goods purchases. More than 46,000 jobs in Texas are directly or indirectly attributed to UTMB.
