Description

Finding aid for the University of North Texas Health Science Center Campus Building Records
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. In 1971, a renovated bowling alley on Camp Bowie Boulevard housed classrooms, basic science laboratories and administrative offices. In 1976, ground was broken for the first permanent building on campus, Med Ed I, or what is now known as the Carl E. Everett Education and Administration Building. In 1982, Med Ed II, or the Research Building opened providing classrooms, basic science offices and laboratories. In 1986, Med Ed III, or what is now the Gibson D. Lewis Health Science Library opened. In 1997, the Patient Care Center opened, housing all the campus clinics. In 2004, the Center for BioHealth opened, dedicated primarily to biotechnology and public health. In 2010, the Medical Education and Training Building, the MET, opened its doors.
