Welcome!  As Historian, my responsibilities include being Editor-in-Chief of the SIC student newsletter, Student Pulse. The Pulse is released quarterly to help develop awareness and communication among the students of all six UTHealth schools. In order to achieve this goal, the SIC needs students to send us news from your school or student organization.  Send us announcements about upcoming events, scholarship awards, fundraising opportunities, volunteering, etc. Together we can work toward a more unified UTHealth student community and support one another toward our common endeavors.

Please send your announcements and information to with a subject line of “Student Pulse Article”.
