Dr. Cutrell is originally from Sulphur Springs in northeast Texas. Following in the footsteps of his uncle and father who both attended UT Southwestern, Dr. Cutrell completed his medical school training at UTSW and was the Ho Din Award winner of his graduating class.

Dr. Cutrell’s clinical interests focus on the care of patients with HIV and the rational and effective use of antimicrobials. He is currently leading the antibiotic stewardship program at the Dallas VA Medical Center in addition to providing clinical care in the HIV clinic, on the general medicine wards, and ID consult service. Dr. Cutrell also has strong interests in graduate medical education and teaches medical students, residents, and fellows in infectious disease.
