DEFINE YOUR FUTURE NOW

Visiting the campus is often times the best way for prospective students to get a complete picture of a university and its programs. We invite you and your family to visit our campus during one of our upcoming Open House dates. Open Houses are generally scheduled monthly at UTMB School of Health Professions planned by each department as listed below.

During Open House, our faculty and staff representing our departments will be available to answer all of your questions about the different programs and services available at the School of Health Professions. During the Open House, you will be able to learn about UTMB, the School of Health Professions, as well as academic programs in which you are interested. We will discuss specific issues related to each of you as prospective students:

  • Prerequisite advisement
  • Application for admission process
  • Interview Dates
  • Degree Tracks
  • Health Professions as they relate to health care delivery and career development

We would like to invite you to attend, we offer several open houses throughout the year. Please see our calendar of dates below. Please continue to check this site for updates.

We hope you and your family will plan to join us for an Open House for a fun and informative day. If you have any questions about Open House, please call Michelle Conley at (409) 772-3006.
