MD Anderson School of Health Professions

The University of Texas MD Anderson School of Health Professions (SHP) is committed to the education of healthcare professionals, through formal academic programs that award institutional certificates and degrees in health sciences.

In 2011, Kinder Foundation committed $1 million toward the acquisition and installation of the self-contained simulated radiotherapy treatment facility in the Kinder Foundation Classroom at the school. The classroom provides an immersive life-sized virtual environment for the training of students in the school’s three radiologic sciences baccalaureate programs. It was the first system of its kind in the U.S.

The foundation’s grant also supports endowed scholarships providing annual financial support for academically able students enrolled in any of the school’s eight baccalaureate health professions programs. Endowed funds make it possible for more students to pursue their education in these fields and further address the need for trained individuals in the healthcare sector.
