University of North Texas proposal for MD program stirs debate
The University of North Texas Health Science Center could begin offering MD degrees within a few years if school officials approve a proposal to add that program to its osteopathic medicine curriculum. The science center's Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine currently offers a DO degree, and the MD idea already has some osteopathic physicians fuming. Leaders of the Texas Osteopathic Medical Association voted unanimously to oppose the plan. "We simply don't understand why there's even talk about an MD program at that school, when what Fort Worth already has is just top of the pile," said Sam Tessen, the association's executive director.
