We promise you
Each day, we work to fulfill a promise—a promise to educate tomorrow’s healers, to search for answers, to always work to make lives better.
We are transforming the world around us. We’re home to five preeminent schools, top-tier research institutes and a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center. Furthermore, we boast the largest multidisciplinary physician practice in the region.
Cohorts of highly qualified students compete for coveted places in our classes, graduate to superb positions around the country and then improve lives all over the world. Research progress is intensifying each day, with its impact felt near and far. Ours is an academic health center where an analysis of a single cell in the urine could obviate the need for radical surgery; where combination therapy cures hepatitis; where new pharmacologic cocktails could reduce the ravages of diabetes; and where targeted therapies can save people with the worst cancers.
The times have never been more exciting.
Since 1959, we have defined our strengths and our purpose through our achievements. Our continued successes and relentless passion fortify this strong foundation.
Today we build on that legacy. We are moving forward under a new, shorter name, UT Health San Antonio, to represent our expanding missions of teaching, discovery and healing.
Together with this new name is a new logo, an orange shield topped by the Alamo’s silhouette, designed to convey the prestigious nature of our university and reflect your trust in our commitment to health care. Inspired by our official seal, our new logo pays tribute to our history, honors our Texas roots and builds on the strong reputation of our institution.
This rebranding of our health science center is historic—and we expect the impact to be profound. Yet it doesn’t change who we are, or what we will achieve. We are healers, educators and scientists, united in purpose. Our promise remains unchanged: We champion health for all.
Since our inception, we have worked to deliver on that promise. We will never waver, even as we begin a new chapter full of limitless possibilities.
