As McGovern Medical School continues the yearlong celebration of its 50th Anniversary, the Office of Communications has begun an initiative to tell the tales of the last half-century through McGovern Time Capsules.

McGovern Time Capsules are videos that highlight the history of the Medical School through first-hand accounts from the students, faculty, and staff that have contribute to 50 years of excellence. Twice per week, you will hear stories from individuals such as Herbert DuPont, MD, who joined the faculty at the Medical School in 1973, and Ayesha Khan, a PhD candidate and graduate research assistant who arrived in 2015.

“McGovern Medical School has a rich and diverse history through its first 50 years,” said Randy Gay, videographer/photographer in the Office of Communications. “We created McGovern Time Capsules as a way to honor that history by giving people a platform to tell their own stories.”

Each new McGovern Time Capsule video debuts on the McGovern Medical School Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages and can always be found on the Medical School’s 50th Anniversary website by clicking here. Additionally, a complete collection of the McGovern Time Capsule videos can be found on the school’s YouTube page by clicking here.

If you are interested in being featured on McGovern Time Capsules and telling the Medical School’s history through your own words, please contact the Office of Communications at ms.communications@uth.tmc.edu.
