The University of Texas System Board of Regents unanimously approved a proposal to establish a medical school at the UT Health Science Center in the East Texas city of Tyler, TX. The school will be the first medical school to open in East Texas.

The East Texas Medical Center Foundation committed $80 million to the school, which UT leaders hope will open in fall 2023. In November 2019, the UT Board of Regents allocated $95 million in proceeds for UT Tyler and UT Health Science Center Tyler to build two facilities to provide health education and health care in the region.

“UT students in Tyler and surrounding areas will now be able to earn their undergraduate and medical degrees in one locale, and then remain in the region to live, build their careers and deliver high quality health care,” UT’s Janiece Longoria said. “That’s good news for the entire state.”
