Summary:  This specific Request for Applications (RFA) seeks to support eligible public and independent institutions of higher education in providing clinical training and practicum experiences to students in health professions education through sustainable academic-clinical partnerships, while also addressing health disparities, particularly those faced by minority populations in Texas. Consistent with the Texas higher education strategic plan, 60x30TX, this RFA aims to increase program completion through expanded enrollment and to facilitate the acquisition of marketable skills that enhance program graduates’ ability to provide health care in a manner and context appropriate for the individuals being served. One guiding premise of the RFA is also that exposure to and awareness of issues concerning access to health care and health disparities may positively influence students’ career aspirations in working with underserved populations upon graduation.

Please see Section 8.1 of the RFA for more information on targeted/priority allied health disciplines.
