Open House Information Sessions

The University of Texas Medical Branch, School of Health Professions is excited to announce that we will be offering both an in-person and virtual Open House sessions.

Whether it is virtual or in person, our goal is the same - to introduce you to our school, academic programs, curriculum, philosophy, and the UTMB campus culture.

Presented by our department faculty admissions advisors, our open house sessions offer you the unique opportunity to learn more about admission requirements, prerequisites, application for admission process, degree tracks, and the health professions as they relate to health care delivery and career development and more!

These sessions will consist of a formal presentation followed by time for questions. Individuals attending will have the opportunity to ask questions in real-time.
