UNT Physicians Group Expands


MarcHahn.jpg The University of North Texas Physicians Group and the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine have added approximately 100 new clinical faculty members from the North Texas Affiliated Medical Group.

“Incorporating physicians from NTAMG into the UNT Physicians Group and TCOM will move us forward and allow us to expand clinical services, provide new research opportunities and advance our academic programs,” said Marc Hahn, DO, dean of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The enhanced UNT Physicians Group and TCOM are now responsible for the delivery of obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, podiatry, psychiatry, cardiology, rheumatology, outpatient community medicine, and oversight of the graduate medical education programs at John Peter Smith Hospital.

“This is an important time for the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and UNT Health Science Center,” Dr. Hahn said. “Our partnership with JPS helps us to better serve the citizens of Tarrant County. We are excited about the opportunities provided by this important relationship. In addition, our association with Plaza Medical Center, Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital, Cook Children’s Medical Center and Baylor All Saints positions our physicians in the major medical facilities in Tarrant County.”

The UNT Physicians Group now has a total of more than 190 healthcare providers, and the number of specialty services offered has expanded to 32. In addition, the number of clinics associated with the group has expanded to 18.

“This will not only enhance our physicians group, it will provide a greater spectrum of academic opportunities for our students,” Dr. Hahn said. “We are looking forward to reaching out to the Fort Worth community even more and providing the most advanced medical services available,” Dr. Hahn said.
