Mission

The mission of the Office of Health Professions Careers is to enhance pre-health student success by providing a variety of services and resources to maximize student personal, and academic excellence. Through our support, we seek to achieve four-year graduation and assist students in becoming outstanding candidates for health professions graduate schools.

The Office of Health Professions Careers at the Brownsville Campus plays an important role in the education of undergraduate learners to ensure students’ success in the health professions. We provide pre-health students with the guidance and essential tools to achieve academic success and become excellent candidates for health professions graduate school.
