Different by design...TCOM.

Founded in 1970, the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) has emerged as one of the nation's leading osteopathic medical schools. During this time, it has received both state and national recognition for its efforts to meet the demands of underserved populations and excellence in education. These honors include:

A Record of Service: Whether they are the only doctor serving a rural community or a specialist at a major medical center, TCOM graduates distinguish themselves as leaders, teachers and scholars. With over 2,800 alumni to date, approximately 65% practice primary care medicine (family practice, general internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology), helping reduce the shortage of physicians in Texas communities. In addition to primary care, alumni also practice in over 50 specialties such as aerospace medicine and vascular medicine. Recent alumni have excelled in some of the nation's most demanding residency training programs by earning the position of chief resident.

In 1975, TCOM became a state-supported medical school under the jurisdiction of the North Texas Board of Regents. In response to TCOM's remarkable growth and its achievements in health care and science, the Texas Legislature redesignated the medical school as a health science center in 1993. TCOM became the cornerstone component, retaining its osteopathic identity and focus.
