UNT Health, our 238-provider faculty practice, is one of the largest multi-specialty physician groups in Tarrant County. Our physicians see more than a half-million patients annually in more than 35 clinical locations across the county.
Our faculty continues to make discoveries that lead to improved treatments, therapies and interventions, working to move those discoveries from the theoretical to the practical – “from bench to bedside” – as quickly as possible.
At the end of fiscal year 2010, the UNT Health Science Center was home to 1,579 students, 395 faculty, 1,413 staff, an alumni body 4,808-strong and four distinct yet interwoven schools, and it’s still growing.
This roundup includes a student selected as a chair of a steering committee, Service Corps awards, published articles, conference presentations and other notable achievements.
The certified nurse-midwives of UNT Health will begin accepting patients at the Eagle Ranch Family Medicine clinic in mid-November 2010. Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNM) are licensed healthcare practitioners providing primary healthcare to women of childbearing age and are educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery.
