Family medicine physician Michele C. Bosworth, MD, recently joined The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler as an assistant professor of family medicine.

Dr. Bosworth, who is board certified in family medicine, comes to UTHSCT after serving as clinical director of the Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) Family Health Center at Cane Creek in Asheville, N.C.

Her duties included overseeing the Cane Creek Clinic and supervising family medicine residents, as well as seeing patients of all ages.

She also was on the faculty of the MAHEC Family Medicine Residency Program, where she earlier completed her residency in family medicine.

For several years, Dr. Bosworth volunteered at a clinic run by the medical ministry of the Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry. In 2003, she spent a month in Guatemala as part of a medical mission trip.

Dr. Bosworth has special interests in preventive health, women’s health, and pediatric and adolescent medicine.

For 60 years, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler has provided excellent patient care and cutting-edge treatments, specializing in pulmonary disease, cancer, heart disease, primary care, and the disciplines that support them. With an operating budget of more than $125 million and biomedical research funding that exceeds $10 million annually, UTHSCT has a major economic impact on East Texas. Its two medical residency programs – in family medicine and occupational medicine – provide doctors for many communities in East Texas and beyond.
