Housed within the Health Outcomes Division is the Texas Center for Health Outcomes Research and Education (TxCORE).  The Center combines the strengths of its nationally-recognized clinical, pharmacy, social and behavioral, economics, and policy researchers to collect, analyze and interpret data, and disseminate our findings throughout the many sectors of the health care industry, government and private sector organizations.

The division, in conjunction with the College and University, are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI).  As a member of an institution of higher education and learning, we recognize and celebrate that each individual has unique qualities that have been shaped by their culture, experiences and other influences.  These unique lenses are welcomed, valued, and respected, and expression of different perspectives is highly encouraged in our teaching, research, and service.
