students on campus

Students interested in participating in a TTUHSC International Program should visit with their school about available opportunities and any school-specific approval process including guidelines for participation and how to receive credit for the experience. 

Two Types of International Programs


Faculty-Led Programs

A TTUHSC faculty member designs the program in consultation with his/her school, recruits students for the program, accompanies the students abroad, administers the program, and is responsible for the educational content of the program.


Institutional Programs at Approved Sites

There are three types of approved sites:

  1. An institution with which TTUHSC has a collaborative agreement
  2. International organizations with which the U.S. has representation (e.g., WHO, PAHO, UN)
  3. Approved teaching hospitals, institutions, and health related organizations. This option allows students to participate in programs they select/arrange and which meet individual interests or passions. Students interested in this option should click here for more information about the approval process and read the note below regarding Restricted Regions.
