TCU Announces New Medical Campus in Fort Worth

Texas Christian University recently announced that it will be building a new campus for the TCU School of Medicine in the Fort Worth Medical District in Fort Worth, Texas. A press release states that construction is scheduled to begin later this year on a roughly 100,000-square-foot, four-story medical education building. The project is tentatively scheduled for completion in 2024.

“The TCU School of Medicine is having a truly exponential impact on our community,” said Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. “Our Horned Frog medical students are benefitting from an exceptional educational experience, the vast clinical expertise and growing medical industry in our area. The TCU School of Medicine is already contributing to the health of our neighbors and the greater good.”

The TCU School of Medicine was first announced in 2015, and its first class of students began in July 2019 to graduate in 2023. Its fourth class will begin taking classes this July. The new facility will serve as a central academic hub for 240 medical students, as well as hundreds of faculty and staff members.

“This new medical campus is ideally located, sitting in the heart of the medical district and adjacent to our valued clinical partners and medical providers,” said Dr. Stuart Flynn, founding dean of the medical school. “Proximity of the medical school is essential to build robust relationships and advantage the amazing opportunities that we and our partners have in Fort Worth. I thank TCU for the vision that will guide our students and school to drive excellence in health care and innovation for our community and beyond.”

The university is partnering with architecture firms CO Architects and Hoefer Welker, as well as the Linbeck Group construction firm.
