Faculty & Student Recruitment

Our mission is to enhance, assist, and supplement the existing recruitment efforts of students with a major focus on the recruitment of under-represented minority faculty and students..


Alicia Simmons, the Coordinator for Educational Outreach, works to recruit students for the School of Medicine, School of Allied Health Sciences, School of Nursing, and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UTMB.


Dr. Clifford Houston, Herman Barnett Distinguished Professor in Microbiology and Immunology, is available to assist all four schools in their recruitment of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and residents to UTMB.
