The University of St. Thomas (UST), Houston
UST STEM students conduct research with professors in the state-of-the-art Center for Science and Health Professionals building. They have the opportunity to participate in internships and meaningful mentorships like those of the Schull Summer Scholars Research program at the Texas Medical Center. Schull provides UST students with the change to interact with scientists conducting research as well as with healthcare professionals in clinical settings. This is invaluable experience for students pursuing health professions such as medicine, dentistry, and physician assistant. All UST students learn to honor the value of human dignity and, like the Schull Institute, care for vulnerable populations.
