Veterans and Service Members

UTHealth recognizes that our military and veteran population is a very diverse group that brings vast experiences and knowledge to our workforce. UTHealth is committed to recruiting and retaining those who served, who are continuing to serve in the United States Military and certain associated individuals.

If you are a veteran, you may be eligible for Veteran’s Employment Preference. To receive preference, you must designate on your application if you are:

  • A veteran
  • A veteran with a service-connected disability
  • An individual currently serving in the guard or reserves
  • A recently separated veteran
  • A veteran’s surviving spouse who has not remarried
  • An orphan of a veteran (if the veteran was killed while on active duty)
  • An active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran
  • An Armed Forces service medal veteran

This information is voluntary and cannot be used against you. Increasing the representation of diverse people in the workplace starts with you.

The process to self-identify is quick and easy. Just print and complete the voluntary self-identification of veterans form. The completed form can be submitted in several different ways to ensure you are counted:
