Approval Process: Self-Identified Sites
The following information outlines the approval process for students interested in participating in a TTUHSC international program at a self-identified teaching hospital/institution abroad or through a self-identified health related organization.
Remember: The approval process must begin at the school level. Students should discuss their selected program with their school to ensure credit will be awarded and contact their school for any school-specific requirements, projects/assignments, and/or prerequisites.
After visiting with their school about the selected program and receiving academic credit for the experience, students must contact OGH. OGH will provide additional information, including an international program worksheet. This worksheet must be completed to initiate the approval process. After completing the worksheet, return it via email to OGH.
After OGH receives the completed international program worksheet, it will be reviewed and a decision regarding approval of the program will be made.
If the selected site is approved by OGH, the worksheet will be forwarded to the dean of the student's school and the Vice President for Academic Affairs for additional approval.
Please note: if the selected site is located in a Restricted Region, additional approval by the International Affairs Council is required. See link below for additional information about Restricted Regions.
OGH will contact the student when the approval process has been completed. Some institutions and organizations require that their own application and approval process be completed in addition to TTUHSC's. Students should not start this process until they have been informed by OGH that the program request has been approved.
If the request is approved by all parties, OGH will contact the student to complete an application. The application provides the information needed to begin the pre-departure requirements.
Upon approval of the self-identified site and receipt of the application, OGH will contact the student to begin the pre-departure requirements. Additional information about pre-departure requirements can be found at the link below.
