STEER: South Texas Environmental Education and Research

A four-week elective course for medical, nursing, and public health students taught in Laredo, Texas, about 155 miles southwest of San Antonio, along the U.S. border with Mexico. The program is part of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and teams instructors from the Health Science Center and The University of Texas-Houston School of Public Health with Laredo’s own educators, health professionals, engineers, sanitarians and community leaders. While it is not a clinical elective, the lessons learned are clinically relevant. Much of the curriculum is focused on environmental health. There are no fees for housing and tuition, but past attendees recommend having a car if possible. Also consider 100+ degree heat of summer.
