A Great Place to Live and Learn

Everyone here at UTHealth School of Public Health thinks Houston is a pretty great place. Our school is right in the middle of the Texas Medical Center and we have access to working with just about any institution in the TMC. Houston has a temperate climate, an incredible diversity of people and cultures, almost any international food you could hope to find, amazing shopping, world-class museums, a low cost of living and some really friendly people.
