UT Health Science Center San Antonio Inaugurates New Military Health Institute
The mission of the Health Science Center’s Military Health Institute is to improve the health of our nation’s military service members, veterans and their families through collaborative education, research and clinical care.


A multidisciplinary and multi-institutional research consortium funded by the DOD and Veterans Affairs (VA) to develop and evaluate the most effective early interventions possible for the detection, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related conditions in active-duty military personnel and recently discharged veterans.

Warrior initiatives at the Center for BrainHealth and Brain Performance Institute aim to arm veteran and active duty service members with the necessary tools to achieve successful, enriching and fulfilling personal and professional lives by proactively optimizing brain performance, building resilience in cognitive brain function, and reversing losses in cognitive capacity.
