Medical School Ranked Among Best Schools for Hispanics
The September issue of Hispanic Business magazine ranked The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston as having one of the top 10 medical schools that promote and encourage a diverse community where Hispanic students can thrive.
The University of Texas Medical School at Houston was ranked 7th - rising from its No. 8 spot on last year's top 10 list.
"We are very proud of this accomplishment," said Judianne Kellaway, M.D., assistant dean for admissions at the UT Medical School at Houston. "Our faculty, students and staff have worked ardently in order to enhance our diversity mission here at UT Houston, and we are so happy to be recognized by Hispanic Business magazine for these efforts."
Joining the UT Medical School at Houston on the "Best Schools for Hispanics" listing are sister institutions UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, UT Medical Branch at Galveston and UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Institutions were ranked using data points from variables including enrollment, faculty diversity, student services, recruiting, retention rate and reputation.
The diversity statement published in the magazine states that the UT Medical School at Houston demonstrates high-quality education in a supportive environment. The diverse student body is 20 percent underrepresented minorities, and students actively participate in the National Network of Latin American Medical Students and community outreach, such as the Houston Hispanic Forum.
Hispanic students make up 12 percent of the medical school's enrollment, and Hispanic faculty account for 7 percent of the school's full-time educators.
