The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth is a graduate-level institution that is part of the University of North Texas System.The school was chartered in 1966 as Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, and its first class of students entered in 1970. TCOM signed an affiliation agreement with North Texas State University (now UNT) in 1972, and a state Senate bill passed in May 1975 made the institution a separate, state-supported medical school under the auspices of NTSU's Board of Regents. The school changed its name to the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth on August 30, 1993, though its medical school component retains the name Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine.Interestingly, the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine was originally a bowling alley in a less than reputable part of town. It has since grown considerably and is one of the fastest growing medical schools in the United States. There are also plans for future expansion.Graduates of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) also receive more training in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine than any other Osteopathic medical school with the exception of the school located in Kirksville, which is the historical birthplace of Osteopathy.
