He accomplished an internship in general medicine, practiced for a year, and finished an additional year of training in Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgery before coming to the United States and attending the University of Texas Health Science Center Tyler Family Medicine program. He was a chief resident and graduated in 1996 and practiced rural medicine in Chandler Texas until 2000.
He was pleased to move back from private practice to pursue his passion for education and join the faculty. He took over as the Program Director of the Family Medicine Residency in 2003 and additionally the Director of Medical Education of the UT Health Northeast in 2004. Dr. MacClements is a Senior Aviation Medical Examiner, is certified in Tropical Medicine and Traveler’s Health, and has an Additional Qualification in Adolescent Medicine.
He believes that learning should be enjoyable and that our program provides a supportive environment for training a quality family medicine physician. As a life long learner, he is dedicated to mastering the complexities of piloting an airplane while learning the bagpipes. He has been observed torturing the residents with his flying anecdotes and threatens to wear his kilt to work. He is proud of the fact that he has successfully flown to and landed at Oshkosh three times, and would love to fly to an offshore island to pursue his scuba diving interests, or to Colorado to snow ski. Fortunately his wife and daughter help keep him grounded, as his dreams of owning his own airplane threaten to financially ruin him.

Kathryn Wortz, Ph.D
Undergraduate: University of California at Los Angeles
Graduate: Texas Tech University
Doctorate: Texas Tech University
Kathryn Wortz, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist, who received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Texas Tech University. Dr. Wortz was recently named Associate Site Director for the Doctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology. A part-timer on our faculty, she is an avid gardener and spends the rest of her week on her farm, growing organic vegetables and trying to keep her dogs out of trouble.
A native Californian, she has remade herself several times over. After graduating magna cum laude from UCLA, she learned to adjust to the flat, windy plains of Lubbock. As a 22-year-old graduate student, her first trip to a Texas grocery store was an adventure. People actually talked to her in the check-out line! (In Los Angeles, this is a clear indication that someone is schizophrenic.) She was sure she had hit the mother lode of psychological illness. Instead, she discovered she had simply entered another culture.
Acculturation has indeed been a long process for her. Her first job was as behavioral science faculty at the Family Practice Residency in Odessa, where she was first introduced to the culture of medicine. The birth of her child foisted her out of that culture and into the culture of motherhood. From there, she began private practice in Midland, which kept her interest for 20 years and helped fund the college educations of her six kids.
Older and wiser, she began to hope for the opportunity to impart her experience to others. And, like Dr. Olusola, she longed for the “Land of Lakes & Trees.” When the last college account was funded, she and her husband left the desert and came to the promised land. The cultural adjustment was made easier by the natural beauty and fabulous sunsets. Here, they enjoy the stature of the trees, the lovely rolling hills, and the water. The opportunity to teach (at UT Health Northeastyler) came on the heals of their move, and she finds herself living happily ever after, influencing great young minds and playing in the dirt.
Donna Mann, LMSW
Program Manager for Residency Recruitment
University of Pittsburgh
University of Pittsburgh
Geriatrics, Community Medicine, Resident Recruitment, Didactics
After graduating with a Master’s degree in Social Work, Mrs. Mann lived in Los Angeles and New York City, sharpening both her social work and survival skills. In 1990 she moved to the "capital of the world" Tyler, Texas, where she was hired by UT Health Northeast to teach Geriatics in the residency program.
Through both personal family experience and professional experience she developed a strong interest in Dementia and related disorders. Mrs. Mann overcame tremendous stage fright [sort of] to speak at several aging conferences on the subject and was recently the co-keynote speaker for the Area Agency on Aging conference. She also produced an educational video "When a Mind is Lost-The Odyssey of Alzheimer’s Disease" which has been shown at national conferences.
Her other strong interest is in the area of resident recruitment. Being a self proclaimed "people person" she enjoys meeting students and recruiting them to the residency program. She has entertained everyone from spouses to babies to prairie dogs in her office and loved every minute. She also enjoys building relationships with the residents and watching as they and their families "grow".
Mrs. Mann [along with her collegue Dr. Bosworth] is a proud member of the "Steeler Nation"
It is a well known fact that she can be tremendously influenced by chocolate.
