TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine
On July 5, 2015, TCU and the UNT Health Science Center signed a historic memorandum of understanding to jointly establish an allopathic medical school in Fort Worth. The TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine will apply for accreditation with the Liasion Committee on Medical Education (LCME) in 2017 and, pending approval, welcome its first class of 60 students in 2019. Eventually growing to a full enrollment of 240, the program will elevate our community’s already high standard of health care, while reducing Texas’ current physician shortage.
Dr. Stuart D. Flynn was hired as Founding Dean in 2016 and reports to both institutions. Dean Flynn and his experienced senior staff are creating a forward-thinking and innovative curriculum that will train empathetic scholars prepared for the rapidly advancing future of medicine.
A private medical school, the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine will rely heavily on philanthropic support from generous donors. Gifts to supplement our annual operating budget, as well as build a long-term endowment to sustain the program in perpetuity, are vital and will be gratefully received.
Your philanthropic investment can have a meaningful impact on:
• Student Scholarships and Assistance
• Faculty Development
• Endowed Chairs and Professorships
• Curriculum and Program Support
A Founding Donors program has been established to recognize those who contribute at visionary levels of $1 million or more prior to the arrival of the first class. Additional special opportunities exist for other levels of support.
