The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) is an institute of health science education and research, located in the South Texas Medical Center.
UTHSCSA is the largest health sciences university in South Texas. Located in the South Texas Medical Center, it serves San Antonio and all of the 50,000 square mile (130,000 km2) area of central and south Texas. It extends to campuses in the metropolitan border communities of Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley.

The university offers over 65 degrees, the majority of them being graduate and professional degrees, in the biomedical and health sciences fields.
UTHSCSA is home to the Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) – a major National Cancer Institute supported Center. The CTRC’s Institute for Drug Development (IDD) is internationally recognized for conducting the largest oncology Phase I clinical drug trials program in the world. Fifteen of the cancer drugs most recently approved by the Food & Drug Administration underwent development or testing at the IDD. Other noted programs include: structural biology, urology, nephrology, transplantation biology, and imaging/medical physics. It is ranked as the 14th largest medical school in the United States in terms of enrollment. The school publishes a periodic newsletter, The Mission.
In 2006, $263 million of facility upgrades were allocated for the campus by the University of Texas Board of Regents. This included a $150 million 200,000-square-foot (19,000 m2) South Texas Research Facility (designed by super architect Rafael Vinoly), scheduled for inauguration in 2011.
