Welcome to McGovern Medical School

The ninth-largest medical school in the United States, we are the largest of the seven schools of UTHealth Houston.

Working in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, our faculty, staff, students, and trainees have amazing opportunities in patient care, research, and collaboration.

Known as a collegial and friendly school, we attract outstanding students. More students apply here than any other public medical school in Texas. With our affordable tuition and fees, we are consistently rated as one of the best values in medical education. We are proud to celebrate our annual traditions that include a Student Retreat for incoming students, White Coat Ceremony, Student Clinician Ceremony, and, of course, Match Day and Commencement.

Our high-tech curriculum is grounded by our values of humanism and respect for each patient. Quality, wellness, and your career are our priorities.

With more than 900 accredited residency and fellowship positions in specialty and subspecialties, we offer an incredible breadth of clinical training programs and are proud to train the best specialists for Texas. Our primary teaching hospital, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, recently was ranked second in the United States among major teaching hospitals.

It is gratifying to know that our more than 8,000 graduates are serving their communities and are carrying on our McGovern Medical School tradition. We welcome you to McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston and invite you to be a part of our story.
