Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has signed a bill creating a medical school at the University of Houston amid concerns about a physician shortage in the state.
Under the legislation signed into law Wednesday, the University of Houston’s College of Medicine will be the 13th medical school in Texas. It will be based in the UH System’s flagship campus in Houston. Nearly half of the Texas medical schools are in the Houston area.
