International Programs for Students | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

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 two types of approved sites:

  1. An institution with which TTUHSC has a collaborative agreement
  2. 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, and includes both approved organizations and self-identified sites.
