Texas A&M Health Science Center is Transforming Health through innovative research, education and service in dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health and medical sciences. As an independent state agency and academic unit of Texas A&M University, the health science center serves the state through campuses in Bryan-College Station, Dallas, Temple, Houston, Round Rock, Kingsville, Corpus Christi and McAllen.
In September 1997, the Texas A&M System Board of Regents approved organization of the health-related entities throughout the A&M System into one university –Texas A&M Health Science Center, which officially began operation on Sept. 1, 1999. Original academic units in the consolidation included College of Medicine, Baylor College of Dentistry, Institute of Biosciences and Technology, the then-proposed School of Public Health and School of Graduate Studies. Located on the Texas A&M University-Kingsville campus, the Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy joined TAMHSC in 2006, and the College of Nursing opened in 2008. On July 15, 2013, TAMHSC transitioned to become a unit of Texas A&M University.
