Alumnus Gives Back in Gratitude for Scholarship He Received
Dr. Edgar L. Cortes (School of Medicine class of 1969) owes his successes in life to his family.
When applying for medical school in 1965, one school rejected Cortes' application and another placed him on the "call back" list.
UTMB not only welcomed him as a medical student, but also offered him a four-year scholarship.
