Affiliation Agreements

Affiliation Agreements

University Health is proud of our established affiliation agreements with many South Texas colleges, universities and high schools. However, you should first check if your school is on the list before applying for an internship.

We require an affiliation agreement before a student can be accepted into the program. Students are advised to contact their school coordinator to find out the steps involved in the internship application process.

How Schools Establish an Affiliation Agreement

From beginning to end, it takes a school an average of eight weeks to establish an affiliation agreement. This varies greatly and depends on factors such as whether a school requests changes to the standard University Health agreement and whether a school is comfortable exchanging documents by email. The process is rigorous and not all schools successfully meet the criteria.

Criteria for Schools Requesting an Affiliation Agreement

Before requesting to establish an agreement, please review our criteria.

To be considered for approval, the request must meet all of the following:

  • School is not-for-profit (public and private)
  • School is physically based in Texas
  • Request is for more than one student at this time

To clarify, requests with any of the following attributes do not meet our criteria:

  • School is proprietary (for-profit)
  • School is not physically based in Texas
  • Seeking to establish an agreement for one student

To request an affiliation agreement, please email

Adding an Academic Program (Amending an Agreement)

If your school's agreement is limited to specific programs, you may request that we amend it to include a specific program. Your amendment request must meet the same criteria as requests to establish agreements.

Exception to Requesting & Amending – Shortage of Student Type

Sometimes there are cases when local, nonprofit schools do not provide the types or quantities of students needed to maintain a healthy recruiting pool. University Health will approve a request if the appropriate director emails us to ask that we make an exception to our criteria.

The director must be the University Health employee overseeing the area in which the students would be completing their activities. The director should email  To find the director of the unit/department you seek, please call our operators at 210-358-4000.
