The LRC supports the teaching and learning functions of the faculty, staff, and students of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and provides a well-furnished physical space for the students to study independently or in a group, 24 hours a day, both in the Medical School Building and at the LBJ Hospital. The LRC promotes the utilization of innovative instructional resources and helps students search online medical literature and cultivates in them life-long study strategies.
