Donate Now - Erwin R. "E.T." Thal, M.D.

Erwin R. Thal, M.D., came to UT Southwestern Medical Center after completing medical school at his beloved "The Ohio State University" and, aside from a brief stint as an Air Force flight surgeon, he never left. For 45 years, he performed surgeries, cared for patients, and dedicated his life to educating physicians-in-training here.

Dr. Thal not only cemented his legacy as a "Giant of Surgery" and distinguished faculty member, but he also shared his resilience, optimism, and gift for living life to the fullest with every patient, medical student, trauma surgery resident, and colleague he encountered.

Join us in celebrating this revered surgeon and educator by contributing to an endowment fund to establish the Carolyn and Erwin R. Thal, M.D., Chair in Trauma Surgery at UT Southwestern.

This Chair will be a lasting and permanent tribute to the extraordinary man he was, the lives he helped save, the surgeons he helped train, and the indelible influence he left behind in all of us.
