Texas Christian University and University of North Texas Health Science Center to Open M.D. School in Fort Worth
Jul 6 15
Texas Christian University (TCU) and the University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) are teaming up to open a new medical school in the heart of the city. TCU and UNTHSC have signed a memorandum of understanding detailing a collaboration between the two academic institutions to open a M.D. school with as many as 60 new students in 2018. About $25 million from private donors has already been pledged to start the new medical school. And TCU announced that the school has pledged to use $50 million from its endowment to support the effort. The M.D. school will give Fort Worth two medical schools. Since 1970, UNTHSC has been home to the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, which will continue to operate at the campus just west of downtown. Facilities, faculty, medical library and other resources would be shared between the two academic institutions to create the school, which would ultimately enroll a total of 240 students by 2021-2022. A dean for the medical school -- who would provide leadership, hire faculty and develop a curriculum of study would be selected by both institutions and report to provosts at both schools. While a joint effort between both schools, the degrees awarded will not contain the UNTHSC name. Under a bill authored by then-Sen. Mike Moncrief in 1993, legislation stipulated that no M.D. degrees could be awarded from UNTHSC. M.D. students will attend classes at both campuses, which are less than three miles apart. TCU is looking to benefit from UNTHSC's expertise in osteopathic medicine and health care. Besides housing the osteopathic medical school, the UNTHSC campus has the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the School of Public Health, the School of Health Professions and the UNT System College of Pharmacy. The two schools already collaborate as students from TCU's Neeley School of Business and UNTHSC's School of Public Health participate in UNTHSC's master's program in health administration. Each partner is counting on the other for the plan to work. A new M.D. school will give Texas more high-quality practitioners in an era of dramatic physician shortages. The new school must be accredited but officials believe they have the credentials and resources to seal accreditation with little or no difficulty.
