medical students interacting during class lecture


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

Experienced, qualified faculty in the biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences challenge students to stretch and grow. In addition, teaching faculty who are practicing physicians in the Valley community participate in the educational process as both part-time and volunteer faculty.

The School of Medicine is characterized by a competency-based curriculum that utilizes the most technologically advanced resources – including an interactive, personalized learning platform; a 15,000-square-foot Smart Hospital complex; and a virtual anatomy and histology laboratory.

All of this comes together within a program ethos that prioritizes improving the health of individuals and the community as a whole. We will graduate outstanding physicians able to coordinate the entire care of the patient, patient advocates focused on the overall community – culturally aware collaborative leaders, life-long learners and problem solvers.

We hope you will continue to follow our progress by visiting us online.
