DALLAS (AP) – Dallas is getting a second medical school.
Baylor Health Care System said in a news release Tuesday that Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas are forming a clinical training program in Dallas.
The program will welcome 23 third-year students in December.
Students in the program will complete their first two years of medical school at A&M campuses in either Bryan-College Station or Temple. Then, during their last two years, students can complete clinical rotations at Baylor and other clinical affiliates.
UT Southwestern Medical Center already operates a medical school in Dallas.
