The UNT System
The Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine at the UNT Health Science Center is recognized as one of the top medical schools in the nation for primary care.
UNT is the flagship campus of the UNT System. The institutions of the UNT System, which is the only public university system located in and primarily serving the North Texas region, serve nearly 40,000 students. In addition to UNT, they include the UNT Health Science Center, UNT Dallas and the UNT Dallas College of Law, which will become the region’s first public law school when it opens in fall 2014.
UNT Health Science Center
A vital part of the system is the UNT Health Science Center at Fort Worth, which includes the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (the state’s only osteopathic medical school that is consistently ranked as one of the top in the country), the School of Public Health, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the School of Health Professions and the UNT Health clinical practice. It will soon be home to the UNT System College of Pharmacy.
UNT Dallas, the first four-year public university in the city, has experienced rapid growth in enrollment and programs since it first began operation as an extension of UNT more than a decade ago. The university, which achieved independence in 2010, offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees and is committed to increasing the number of citizens in Dallas and the North Texas region with a college education. Its buildings feature state-of-the-art computer labs, classrooms, a virtual library and “green” features such as a roof-top garden.
