HISPANIC BUSINESS MAGAZINE RANKS UNT HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER AS A TOP MEDICAL SCHOOL FOR HISPANICS


gsbs.jpg Hispanic Business magazine ranked the UNT Health Science Center’s Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine as one of the top five medical schools in the nation for Hispanics.

TCOM was fifth behind Stanford University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of New Mexico and Texas A&M University Health Science Center. The announcement was made in the September edition of the magazine, which contained its education report.

“The Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine appreciates the strength an institution garners from diversity within its ranks,” said TCOM Dean Marc B. Hahn, DO. “We have strived to develop quality academic programs within a rich environment that assures diversity.”

Rounding out the top ten, as rated by Hispanic Business, were the University of Kansas, the University of Arizona, East Carolina University, Edward Via Virginia and Ohio State University.

This was the first year that Hispanic Business rated medical and engineering schools, adding to their previous directories of business and law.

“We are very excited to be included on this list,” said Ronald R. Blanck, DO, president of UNT Health Science Center. “This ranking shows our continued commitment to improving diversity in the medical profession in an effort to help bridge the gap in health disparities.”
