South Texas Environmental Education and Research (STEER)

South Texas Environmental Education and Research (STEER) immerse health professions students and faculty in the unique culture and environment of the Texas-Mexico Border. Our purpose is to reunite Medicine and Public Health. Students may choose to take STEER in Harlingen for a practicum or elective. Many universities offer course credit. Our students come from medical and public health schools across the US. Students find themselves in a new learning environment every day that allows them to link theory and practice.
