Internal Medicine

Welcome to the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) School of Medicine!

The UTRGV School of Medicine is historic, and has enormous potential.  We are all so excited to be a part of its growth and development.  With its strong social mission, with its creation of new residencies and fellowships, UTRGV Internal Medicine is poised to become a top-notch program for the next generation of internists and physicians. 

We are building new programs and working to recruit a diverse faculty to achieve the UTRGV SOM mission and institutional goals of enhancing the education and experience of students, increasing access to high-quality care and expanding research in diseases of importance to the Rio Grande Valley. 

I am deeply honored to serve as the Founding Chair. Come learn about why our students and residents are happy and proud to represent UTRGV to the world.
