UH Medical degree approved

(Mike Hull) #1

Pres. Khator just tweeted that the Texas High Ed. Coordinating Board has officially approved UH to offer a medical doctorate.

Sorry. I can’t get her tweet to appear here–I’m sure it’s simple.


We got it done…unanimous vote from Coordinating Board for UH Doctor of Medicine program!

Still some work to do, but a great step forward! From the Chronicle…

"The Coordinating Board approval is one of three major hurdles a UH medical school faces. Still remaining are accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and support by the Texas Legislature.

UH plans to submit application materials to the LCME in early December. That process typically takes no less than 10 months."
