Welcome to the General Surgery Residency Program at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, Texas.
San Antonio is a beautiful and unique city — with more than 1.3 million people, it's the 7th largest city in the U.S. and the 2nd largest city in
the city has managed to retain much of the small-town friendly feel that has made it 'home' for so many
transplants. With many great school systems within San Antonio and in the outlying smaller towns, San Antonio
is a wonderful place to raise a family. Summers are hot, winters are relatively mild (it has snowed 31 times in the past 122 years), and the
San Antonio metropolitan area offers all the big-city amenities without the big-city feel.
More about life in San Antonio
The UT Health Science Center San Antonio is located in the South Texas Medical Center (STMC), in the northwest part of the city.
Our medical center is 900 acres of rolling park-like hills serving as
home to over 45 medically-related institutions, including 12 hospitals. Although definitely a world-class urban medical center, the sprawling
campuses have a distinctly rural look and feel.
