It is my pleasure to announce that University of Texas Medical Branch alumnus Christopher Lewis, MD, will be the keynote speaker for our 125th School of Medicine Commencement on Saturday, May 30th. Dr. Lewis is Chief Educator and Production Manager at Doctors in Training and a family physician in Round Rock, Texas.
A native Texan, Dr. Lewis graduated magna cum laude from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, in 1999 and earned his MD from UTMB in 2003. He went on to complete his residency training in family medicine in Waco, Texas.
In his role at Doctors in Training, an online education company, Dr. Lewis has been responsible for the creation, editing and teaching of hundreds of lectures. He has worked on Step 1, Step 2 and Step 3 board review courses, as well as standalone courses in subjects such as anatomy, pharmacology, obstetrics, gynecology and internal medicine. He co-authored the third edition of Step-Up to USMLE Step 2 CK and Step-Up to USMLE Step 1.
He is also Associate Professor at Texas A&M Health Science Center, where he teaches third-year medical students during their family medicine clerkship.
In addition to caring for patients at Brushy Creek Family Physicians group practice, Dr. Lewis volunteers his services through Samaritan Health Ministries, a faith-based, non-denominational nonprofit that provides health and wellness services to uninsured families in Williamson and Travis counties.
Dr. Lewis is known for his engaging and humorous teaching style, and I am excited to welcome him as this year’s commencement speaker.
