For Healthcare Professionals

Thanks for connecting with University Health System

We are honored to collaborate with physicians from San Antonio and across Texas to help them refer patients to UT Medicine San Antonio specialists and transfer patients to University Hospital. 

We invite you to learn more about fellowships, residencies and other educational opportunities.


We look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with you on the care of your patients and are committed to delivering excellent support to you and your patient. You can refer your patient for diagnostics, treatment, second opinions, consultations and follow-up care.


University provides a one-call patient transfer system for adults and children, making transferring a patient to University Hospital easy. We make every effort to include family in the transfer process and provide transport assistance services for maternal and neonatal transports.

Fellowship & Residency

Our Fellowship programs and Residency programs offer healthcare providers a wide range of clinical benefits and quality outcomes.

As the only Magnet designated healthcare organization in San Antonio and South Texas, we offer the gold standard in nursing care to our patients while insuring core values, professional collaboration, clinical nurse leadership and nursing practice excellence.
