Master Plan: Growing Facilities

The first phase of our campus expansion included the recent opening of the 112,000 sq.ft. Medical Education and Technology Building. This state-of-the-art education center will support the expansion of our academic programs and the continued growth of our students, faculty and staff. This building is part of a phased five-year plan that will add approximately 270,000 square feet to our campus and promises to advance our legacy of innovation to an entirely new level.

Building A

This new building includes spacious new auditoriums and lecture halls, cutting-edge patient simulation labs, an osteopathic manipulative training center, and a small food services center.

In our long-range master plan, the campus also will feature four open quads that will link clustered buildings and establish one large interconnected campus with 10 new energy-efficient buildings. Parking will be improved and integrated with the campus design to accommodate the growing campus population. Finally, a central "spine" walkway will unify the west and east ends of the campus. At night, this spine will be transformed into a "Walk of Light," a metaphor for eternal health.

By creating a greener, more welcoming and integrated campus, the new structures will better serve the needs of students, faculty and staff, and they will become a valued and desirable destination point in Fort Worth's already renowned Cultural District.
