The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine offers an exceptionally innovative learning experience designed to instill students with scientific, clinical and research expertise of the highest professional standards.

Our goal is to attract the best talent from the Valley, the state, the country and beyond for faculty and staff positions. We are fortunate to have laid some of this groundwork over the past 15 years through the Regional Academic Health Centers in Harlingen and Edinburg. The UTRGV School of Medicine opened in the summer of 2016 and welcomed 55 students into its charter class.
