Khator emphasized that UH still plans a footprint in the medical center. She said UH will renovate a building it owns there on Moursund Street at Braeswood Boulevard — the site not chosen for the medical school — and utilize it for educational and research programs.
The board also approved the establishment of tuition and fees for the doctor of medicine degree at $23,755. They said that’s on par with such degrees at existing Texas public universities and less than half the $55,000 to be charged at Sam Houston State University’s planned osteopathic medical school. Sam Houston officials will hold ground-breaking ceremonies on its facility in Conroe Friday.
