In Spring 2018, we visited UT Southwestern medical school in Dallas, Texas. UT Southwestern replaced Baylor School of Medicine when that system was relocated to Houston in 1943. This medical center now has about 230 medical students enrolling in each class with a large focus on research and team-based learning. UT Southwestern faculty physicians offer patient care at UT Southwestern University Hospitals & Clinics, Parkland Health & Hospital System, Children’s Medical Center, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, VA North Texas Health Care System, and other affiliated hospitals and community clinics. Training in both private and public hospitals, as well as the location of John F Kennedy's treatment in Parkland hospital, allows for an amazing training in medicine. This medical school has cutting-edge equipment and experiences for medical students.
Stay tuned for what we are playing this semester!
