History

The Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine accepted its first students in 1970. In 1975, TCOM came under the umbrella of North Texas State University, which later evolved into the UNT System that now includes campuses in Denton and Dallas. With the establishment of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in 1993, TCOM expanded into a graduate university with multiple colleges and changed its name to the University of North Texas Health Science Center.
