Welcome to the Jane and Robert Cizik School of Nursing at UTHealth's Professional Development and Faculty Affairs resource site (also known as the TLC site)! Our goals are to provide a one stop shop for resources that enrich teaching and learning, scholarship, effective mentoring, leadership skills, and career advancement. Our focus includes promotion of a healthy work environment that exemplifies the School of Nursing Values: Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Collaboration, and Accountability. This is fundamental in accomplishing the School of Nursing's mission and assisting in attracting and retaining our brilliant faculty. We invite you to explore the opportunities available throughout this site.

What's New

You will pay lower copays and coinsurance when seeing a participating UT System provider at a participating UT System facility.

We welcomed fourteen new faculty to our School of Nursing Family in 2017.

The School of Nursing Health Services Clinic has again achieved PCMH Level 3 Recognition through July, 2020.

A number of criterion and indicators factor into an organization receiving PCMH Recognition, including quality of care provided to the patients, overall patient satisfaction with the healthcare experience, staff satisfaction and reducing costs while providing quality care.
