UNTHSC Medical School Now Solely TCU’s?


Recommended Posts

Anyone have additional background on this?  I’ve always known about the collaboration between the two schools, but didn’t know the plan was for UNT to cede the new medical school away completely.  What was in it for us then?

This is definitely a change.  UNT's school has always offered a DO.  With this collaboration, UNT was also offering an MD.  It sounds like TCU just piggy-backed on UNT until they were able to take it on their own.

Regardless of what you think of the final outcome, we were taken advantage of.

Are you sure about that?    I don't think this ever happened.

In 2015, UNTHSC and TCU announced the creation of a joint MD school, which will accept its first class of students in 2018.

$25 million gift for TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine

Wow, the UNT Health Science Center (HSC?)sure has distanced itself from affiliation with the University of North Texas.

The signage formerly had UNT in the name and was posted in GREEN, not black.

In an AMAZING coincidence, Carolyn Cross, a TCU alum and the Director for the HSC, who's worked with changing the name and color identity, is the same person that was in charge of UNT Branding when black was mysteriously added as an "official" school color on the UNT Branding site.

Green and White were voted as our school colors 119 years ago. No other color has ever been voted in.

Our university identifies with GREEN probably more than any other school in the nation relies on a color for identity: Go Mean Green!

Yet, it called a tin-foil-hat-conspiracy mentioning when somebody that has no ties to the school other than employment, is permitted to monkey with our heritage, because she liked some fashion color better, possibly because it made her look slimmer, or maybe that she has malicious intent.

Now, she's worked with rebranding our medical school to TCU Medical School and something generically called hsc,

Wow, if that logo doesn't get your Mean Green Pride flowing then I don't know what will.

Yes, it sure appears that we've been bamboozled.

The recent job posting included the HSC in the job listing since we are now known as UNT World.
