TWU/Texas Medical Center Relationships

As a TWU Houston Center student, you are immediately enveloped in two communities: that of TWU and the Texas Medical Center (TMC). The TMC Community is rich with its offerings for students of health care disciplines. Opportunities are abundant for students to network both formally and informally with other health professionals here in the Medical Center. The TWU Houston site also receives tremendous support and benefits from the united strength of the Texas Medical Center community in areas such a hurricane preparedness, H1N1 response, and international communication, to name a few.
