The Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) has been designated as the anchor entity for RHP 8 and RHP 17. TAMHSC has embraced the legacy of Texas A&M University’s designation as a land grant institution and is committed to the health and well-being of communities. TAMHSC has a long history of working to ensure exceptional education, superior science, and compassionate care through training the next generation of health professionals, the practical application of our research efforts, impacting health policy, offering community educational programs, and providing care where there is little or no access.
It is this ongoing commitment to community, infrastructure, academic and practical expertise, and our experience in the implementation of federal and state policy-driven health initiatives, that makes TAMHSC uniquely qualified to serve as the anchor for RHP 8 and RHP 17 and drives us to provide the best service to the communities and ensure the greatest benefit to all stakeholders and patients.
