Bilingual Health TrackEducating and Graduating Culturally Competent Bilingual Physicians
The Bilingual Health Track (BHT) introduces medical students to Spanish clinical experiences abroad and in the US and to medical knowledge. It is a one-of-a-kind scholarly concentration that emphasizes and addresses cultural competency in Hispanic health during the student’s academic years.
The UTMB Hispanic Center of Excellence and the UTMB Center for Global and Community Health are here to help you along the way to tailor program selections to your specific interests. The BHT and the Community Engagement Track (CET) offers students the opportunity to explore the community more in depth in a bilingual setting.
The student may pursue the BHT Curriculum or the BHT-CET Curriculum to graduate as a Scholar in Bilingual Health. All students must complete 5 elective credits and attend 10 capstone project presentations. The curriculum is integrated across the four years of medical school.
