We are a multifaceted, interdisciplinary team of healthcare providers and researchers. We are committed to providing excellence in clinical care, education, and research. Our goals and objectives amplify the distinctive nature of osteopathic physicians and their roles in delivering the highest quality health care to the citizens of Texas.


Through innovative curricular designs, early clinical experiences, and mentorship, the department is focused on producing highly competent, caring, and compassionate Family Medicine physicians, helping reduce the shortage of primary care physicians in our Texas communities.


We aim to provide a medical home and comprehensive quality care for the entire family at our clinical sites. We provide specialty care of musculoskeletal, sports medicine and osteopathic approaches to systemic diseases in our specialty clinics.


Our collaborative and translational research program is involved in interdepartmental, interscholastic and interdisciplinary projects. Our diverse program in osteopathic manipulation and family medicine as it relates to biomechanics, aging, orthopedics, clinical and bench research is a leader in the national effort to enhance osteopathic medical education and research.


We stress the importance to our students of giving back to their communities in Texas through our Community Resources course which results in students providing 2000 hours of service to over 70 community service organizations in our community annually.
