APP Student Placement

Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center (TMC) is the primary teaching hospital for the McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). Memorial Hermann-TMC provides clinical sites for students and allows them to practice leading-edge care in heart, neuroscience, orthopedics, women’s health, pediatrics, organ transplantation, and much more.

Due to the high volume of requests and limited preceptor availability, placement cannot be guaranteed for all students. Students will be notified via email once the request is received. In the interim, students should not communicate directly to clinics or providers, as working outside of the process may delay or inhibit placement. The APP Education Coordinator will review the application and share applicable components with potential preceptors and advanced practice leadership according to the following timeline:

​Rotation Dates Applications Accepted ​Student Notification

Fall (September – December)
Spring (January – April)
November 1 – January 1
