The UT System health institutions play a key role in education. Within the System's six health institutions, there are four medical schools, two dental schools, three nursing schools, four biomedical science graduate schools, four schools of health professions as well as a school of biomedical informatics and a school of public health with five regional campuses.

Educating more high-quality professionals is a strategic priority of the UT System. Among public academic health institutions in Texas, the UT System awarded more than two-thirds of all health-related degrees. UT System health institutions annually award:

  • More than 3,200 degrees

  • More than 180 Ph.D. medical scientists

  • More than 900 graduates from nursing schools (including nearly 290 master's and Ph.D.s)

  • More than 640 graduates from health profession schools (including over 300 master's and Ph.D.s)

  • More than 200 public health scientists (169 master's and 44 Ph.D.s)
