Texas School Ranked Among Best For Hispanics

 HOUSTON— Hispanic Business magazine ranked The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) as having one of the top 10 medical schools for Hispanic students for the fifth year in a row.

The UTHealth Medical School was ranked fifth in the magazine’s recent “2010 Top 10 Medical Schools for Hispanic Students” listing.

“This ranking is a testament to our Medical School’s commitment to educating a diverse student body that will be prepared to meet the health needs of our state,” said Giuseppe N. Colasurdo, M.D., dean of the UTHealth Medical School.

Institutions were ranked using data points from variables including enrollment, faculty diversity, student services, recruiting, retention rate and reputation. According to Hispanic Business, the ranked schools embrace diversity as a means of educational enrichment.

Hispanic students make up 14 percent of the enrollment at the UTHealth Medical School and Hispanics comprise 9 percent of the faculty.

“We are delighted to continue to be one of the top 10 medical schools for Hispanic students. Our mission is to educate physicians to serve the citizens of our state, and our goal is to have a student body that mirrors the diversity of the population of Texas,” said Margaret McNeese, M.D., associate dean of Admissions and Student Affairs at the UTHealth Medical School.

Joining the UT Medical School at Houston in the magazine's listing are three other institutions in The University of Texas System: The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
