The Texas A&M Health Science Center measures customer satisfaction by allowing its customers to rate its services. Customers enhance the service standards by their survey responses. Each College distributes customer satisfaction surveys to all professional program students as a standard part of the graduation process. The survey has a series of questions; each has a rating scale from 1 to 5. Scores of 2 or below require customer suggestions for improvement, and will receive management response. The survey results are reported annually to ensure that the Health Science Center is properly serving the citizens of Texas by providing the best customer service possible.
