The clinical setting is the most immediate avenue for us to fulfill our purpose of providing transformative care to Texans. Through a structure that utilizes our own clinical sites and a select group of clinical affiliates, we provide excellent educational settings for our faculty, students and residents to learn and practice.
21st century health care
Our goal is to set the bar for integrated practice plans through team-based education and a keen eye on population health. This practice plan creates a new paradigm that relies on all health professions and leverages the College of Medicine’s research expertise from the outset.
The Texas A&M Interprofessional Faculty Practice Plan combines team-based education, cutting-edge population health research, community engagement mobilization, partnership with nationally-renowned health systems, health science center clinics, value-based care, and residency education.
"I’m excited to help craft a compelling vision to incorporate research, education, student teaching and residency teaching in a team approach consistent with the direction of value-based care and payment systems, and the opportunity to vastly improve the quality of care for patients.”

Partnerships with purpose
Our clinical affiliates provide students with experiences across Texas. From some of the largest health care systems in the country to community clinics, all affiliates help us provide excellent experiences for students and allow them to practice the Aggie core values. These partners also expose students to a wide range of patient populations and leading faculty practitioners.
