Medical care does not begin and end in a doctor’s office or hospital. Sometimes, it involves a classroom. Corpus Christi Medical Center provides educational opportunities for patients and their families so they can learn about a new medical condition and improve healing and overall health.

The educational programs at Corpus Christi Medical Center provide the support our community needs, ranging from childbirth options to how to adjust after having a stroke. We’ve partnered with national organizations to bring a variety of educational programs into the Corpus Christi community for the benefit of patients and their families.
