Welcome back, alumni!

July 2011. Video looking back as the UTMB Health Department of Family Medicine celebrates the 40th anniversary of the start of its residency program.

We in the Department of Family Medicine are always happy to welcome our alumni back to the Island. Coming for a visit? Drop us a line at family.medicine@utmb.edu; we’d be happy to see you when you are here.
