Missed out on Giving Day? There's still time to make an impact! Click here to show your support today.


The road to saving and improving lives begins at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. We stand as a powerhouse of education and research in the Texas Medical Center, with extraordinary faculty, staff, and students who shape the understanding and practice of medicine.    

Our educators train the future physicians who will practice in our communities and the rising physician-scientists who will move the field forward. Our researchers enhance our understanding of disease and injury while developing treatments that lead to longer, healthier lives. We maintain a robust clinical presence through our network of hospitals and outpatient facilities, serving as a trusted health resource throughout Houston and beyond.

This year, as UTHealth Houston celebrates its 50th anniversary, we look back on five decades of improving Houston’s health. Your gift of any size will combine with the generosity of our community to support the people, programs, and research that will keep us on the leading edge of health care for another 50 years.
