Clinics and hospitals across Texas and around the nation are grappling with shortages of nurses, physicians, dentists, and other frontline care providers—and patients and communities bear the brunt of these personnel shortages.
But the need for talented health professionals extends far beyond the frontline. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us how desperately we need a robust public health infrastructure. And as institutions and providers alike discover the role data science and artificial intelligence can play in preventing disease and improving care, the needs and opportunities that exist at the intersection of data and health are great.
UTHealth is uniquely positioned to tackle these challenges head-on: We already graduate more health care professionals than any other institution in Texas, and as an academic medical center where research, education, and care intersect, our graduates leave positioned and prepared to make a bigger difference.
