FORT WORTH, Texas â?? The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth launched a new website earlier this month, which culminated more than two years of planning and development.

The site now includes information about all the UNT Health Science Centerâ??s programs in education, research, patient care and community service. The website is designed to be easily navigated from the home page.

There are front-page links to the institutionâ??s Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Public Health and Physician Assistant Studies Program sites.

There are also direct links to specific information about the health science centerâ??s research Institutes for Discovery, the Gibson D. Lewis Library, Continuing Medical Education and employment opportunities. The site also contains an expertâ??s guide listing the clinical and research expertise of the health science centerâ??s health professionals and researchers.

The goal in the design of the site is to make it “front door functional” to allow a simple navigation through the various areas of the site. It is set up in a dynamic format that allows for immediate updates of content and easy redesign of pages.

For the design and development portion of the project, the health science center contracted with KnightRidder.com, a new online services division of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

To view the new site, please go to http://www.hsc.unt.edu.
