Still in development, CAST Med will add to the pipeline of much-needed doctors and researchers in the San Antonio area. CAST Med builds on San Antonio’s unique strengths and current educational gaps with an emphasis on medicine and biomedical research. UT Health, with its research expertise and growing focus on population health and health disparities, is a key partner helping design a path for students wishing to improve the health of our community. CAST Med will incorporate a three-way educational partnership between UT Health, the University of Texas at San Antonio and San Antonio ISD.

Students enrolled in CAST Med will follow one of three pathways:

  • Biomedical Research
  • Medical Professionals
  • Public Health Professionals



The CAST Med campus is located at 2601 Louis Bauer Drive in the Brooks development. High school instructional spaces are to include a 215-seat auditorium and lab spaces for biology, biotech and engineering, virtual anatomy and computer stations.

Message from the Principal - Dr. Eddie Rodriguez

I believe that CAST Med is an amazing opportunity for students and their families. When students are exposed to a learning environment with the appropriate climate, structure, and both academic and socio-emotional support, I believe that all students can be successful. I'm excited that CAST Med will be a place that teaches not only the required academic information in medical pathways, but also discipline for learning and studying, and even offers parents strategies to support their sons and daughters to be successful."
