The Hills

Alumnus makes $2.1 million gift to TCOM
Rick Hill, DO (TCOM ’78), and his wife, Cindy, have made an estate gift totaling $2.1 million, the largest single gift ever, to the UNT Health Science Center. When the gift is fully endowed, it will provide scholarships to Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) students training to become primary care physicians in Texas. The estate gift features assets including Hill’s collection of rare automobiles including a 1931 Model A and a 2005 Ford GT, among many others.

The Hills have also made an initial donation in honor of TCOM’s first dean, the late Henry Hardt, to award the first scholarship this year. Hill will honor others who were instrumental in his success with future annual gifts.

Update on proposed MD school
At the UNT System Board of Regents public meeting in March, the Health Science Center was asked to further study the proposal of adding a separate MD school.  The Board of Regents also requested that the Health Science Center develop an academic and business plan for the proposed MD school with the help of an outside consulting firm.  The Health Science Center has posted a request for proposals for these consulting services and created a Core Team, led by Kathleen Forbes, MD, and Thomas Yorio, PhD, to work with the consulting firm to develop the plan. The consulting firm will be selected in July and will work with the Core Team throughout the summer and fall and will present the plan at the November Board of Regents meeting. Watch for updates on the Study Group Web site.

Vita Link students
Dozens of Fort Worth Independent School District students went to work in offices and clinics across campus as part of the school district’s Vital Link program. The week-long internship gives students the opportunity to work at companies around Fort Worth to develop some real-world experience. These students learned about the graphic arts from Debbie Lewis and Jim Halley in Biomedical Communications. More Vital Link students will be on campus next week.
