Sam Houston State defends its plan for a new medical school to address rural physician shortages

Chancellor McCall argues the proposal meets all the standards laid out by lawmakers; Commissioner Paredes argues there are weaknesses, including Sam Houston’s limited experience in doctoral level sciences

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board will call a special meeting in the next two weeks to reconsider the Texas State University System’s application for a medical school.

University officials appeared blindsided by a last-minute decision of THECB staff on Thursday to forego recommending the medical school, which would be located in Conroe and set to open in 2020.
