In 1997, Dr. Saperstein established the Phillip P. Saperstein, DO, Award for Outstanding Family Practice Resident in the Family Practice Residency Program at UNTHSC. 

Dr. Saperstein not only helped prepare TCOM students to practice medicine but also advanced his profession through participation in medical associations. He was a leader on campus and helped enhance UNTHSC by serving on numerous university committees.
