The procedure for developing a faculty-led program at a new site is outlined below. A new site is defined as a site at which TTUHSC has not previously been engaged (no previous faculty-led programs or agreements) or a site at which there was a previous agreement, but the agreement expired and was not renewed.

After demonstrated success and sustainability of the international program site, the faculty champion will be required to submit a strategic plan to the Office of Global Health. The Office of Global Health will contact the faculty champion with the necessary templates to be used for development of the strategic plan.
