Training and continuing education


Training Mission

Texas A&M Telebehavioral Care provides students from a variety of disciplines opportunities to apply what they are learning in the classroom to a clinic setting to positively impact the communities we serve.

“There is a huge gap between how technology has expanded and where the workforce is prepared to go. We must equip the next generation of health professionals with the tools and knowledge required for telehealth.” —Dr. Carly McCord, Director of Telebehavioral Care.
