Open House Information Sessions

The University of Texas Medical Branch, School of Health Professions offers in-person and virtual Open House Information Sessions. Whether you attend virtually or in person, our objective remains the same: to acquaint you with our institution, academic programs, curriculum, philosophy, and the overall culture at UTMB.

Conducted by our department's faculty admissions advisors, these open house sessions provide a unique chance to gain insights into admission prerequisites, the application process, degree options, and the intersection of health professions with healthcare delivery and career growth, among other topics!

These sessions will start with a formal presentation and a dedicated time for questions. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions in real time.
