Collaboration and partnerships lead to innovations. We are dedicated to advancing the health and well-being of our military and civilian families through innovations that have a direct clinical impact.
Recent clinical advances gained from military operations often have a reciprocal impact on our civilian populations.

American Corporate Partners
MHI leads the university effort of promoting American Corporate Partners (ACP). This national mentoring program provides veterans opportunities to grow professionally through resume building, networking, and career advising. MHI actively recruits UT Health San Antonio faculty and staff to serve as mentors.
ACP Mentors and Protégés are paired for one year based on a variety of considerations. Each pair is encouraged to speak at least once a month, typically virtually, to discuss topics like résumé and interview preparation, networking, and other professional development topics. Throughout the year, an ACP staff member will be checking in regularly as support. Only 25% of ACP’s Mentors are veterans themselves, so you do not need to be a veteran to apply – just someone who wants to give back to this deserving community!

Connecting with Senior Leaders
The Military Health Institute (MHI) is dedicated to engaging with senior military, academic, and industry partners. In the past, our team has met with military commanders, city, state, and federal leaders, to include the San Antonio Mayor, the Chamber of Commerce, as well as state and federal legislators. Most recently, MHI hosted Brig Gen John Andrus, the Commander of the 711 Human Performance Group out of Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, met with UT Health San Antonio faculty, students, and staff to talk about the future of human performance research.
Celebrating our Veterans
The Military Health Institute celebrates our nation’s veterans by connecting with local veteran service organizations and working with our community to ensure our military veteran community is receiving top-tier healthcare. MHI is dedicated to advocating for the success of veterans in their families at the local, state, and federal levels. Our Program Manager, Micah Wright, who is a Marine Corps Veteran and Purple Heart Recipient recently spoke about the importance of serving veterans and their families.
Military Scholarship Opportunities
The Military Health Institute is honored to support students who are interested in joining the military as a military healthcare worker. Recently, the MHI Program Manager spoke at new student orientations about the different opportunities available. Although not comprehensive, this presentation provides a great overview of available opportunities. You may also follow the links below to view branch-specific scholarships.
The MHI was an advocate with the City Council and Bexar County Commissioners Court to support and pass resolutions recognizing the existing trauma partnership between Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) and University Hospital and the importance of maintaining the integrity of this partnership for benefit to the community at large as well as our military.

We believe it is important to engage with local community members, so we work with many local military and veteran support organizations.
