Walter Capote, MD

Walter Capote, MD
April 1, 1989 - August 5, 2021

It has been just over a year since we lost one of our Surgery Residents, Walter Capote, MD.  He passed away on Thursday, August 5, 2021.  The entire Department of Surgery acknowledges that this is a tremendous loss to the University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga, University Surgical Associates, Erlanger Health System, and our entire community.  Walter was a beloved colleague, physician, and friend who was recognized for his teaching skills and for doing everything possible for his patients.  He was survived by his mother, father, brother, and many other family members. 

Walter was born in Puerto Rico, and he completed his undergraduate degree at Florida State University before entering medical school and graduating from the Universidad Central del Caribe in 2016.

Walter joined our Surgery Residency as a first year Preliminary Surgery Resident on July 1, 2016.  The following year he matched as a first year Categorial Surgery Resident and would have completed our program on June 30, 2023.  He was a Surgical Critical Care Fellow at the time of his death.  We still miss him -- he was part of our family.
