​Harvard School of Public Health 
"Undergraduates ge​t taste of public health in summer programs"​​ - August 25, 2014 - In only two months as an intern in a lab at Harvard School of Public Health, Erika Espinosa believes she learned more than she could have in a semester of undergraduate courses. 

...............................................................................................................................................Opportunities Available for Students to Pursue Medical and Biomedical Careers

Students at The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College with aspirations of a career in medicine or biomedical research have access to life-changing opportunities to help them pursue their dreams.

Not only do students now have the splendid new Biomedical Research Building as undergraduates, but also they have the support of two well-established campus departments devoted solely to fostering their efforts toward reaching their goals.

​...............................................................................................................................................

Students have limitless career opportunities available to them in health professions

As students walk across the stage at The University of Texas and Texas Southmost College Spring Commencement this month, many will be completing healthcare related studies and starting their careers, while others will head to medical centers in San Antonio and beyond for advanced degrees.

Among those continuing their studies will be Ivan Valdez of Brownsville, who participated in the Minority Biomedical Research Support, Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (MBRS R.I.S.E.), a program designed to increase the number of minorities completing undergraduate degrees and continuing to doctorates in biomedical science.
