The UTRGV School of Medicine

Opening in 2016, the UTRGV School of Medicine will offer an exceptionally innovative learning experience designed to instill students with scientific, clinical, and research expertise of the highest professional standards. The medical school will be characterized by a competency-based curriculum utilizing the most technologically-advanced resources-inclusive of an interactive, personalized learning platform, a 15,000-square-foot Smart Hospital complex, and a virtual anatomy and histology laboratory. All of this will be combined with a program ethos that prioritizes improving health at the individual and community level. We will graduate outstanding physicians who are: Patient Advocates, Community Focused, Culturally Aware, Collaborative Leaders, and Life-Long Learners and Problem Solvers.

The UTRGV School of Medicine will not be recruiting students until coursework requirements have been implemented pending state approval and preliminary accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. Additional proposed admissions criteria will be posted as program development continues. Please continue to check back with us for updates.
