Meeting of the minds

From interprofessional training and education, to innovative programs like Engineering Health and Healthy South Texas, we’re reinventing health professions education. For us, it’s a comprehensive approach to how faculty teach, how students learn and how health care is delivered.

A culture of collaboration

We go beyond putting students from different disciplines in a room together. Here we have an educational system that trains health care leaders in interdisciplinary settings, allowing them to realize their full potential as members of holistic health care teams.

Through simulated experiences, mission trips across the world and groundbreaking programs, we empower the next generation of leaders who won’t accept the status quo.
