UNT Health Science Center Physicians Named Top Docs


Nineteen faculty members from UNT Health Science Center were named Top Docs for 2006 in the April issue of Fort Worth, Texas magazine.

“We are proud of the accomplishments of our entire faculty,” said Marc B. Hahn, DO, dean of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, “but to have such a large number of our faculty recognized as ‘Top Docs’ demonstrates the world-class status of Fort Worth’s medical school’s faculty.”

For the survey, Fort Worth, Texas magazine polls area doctors, who then vote on who they think are the top doctors in the area.
