Preparing a new partnership for a Primary Care Pathway ...
The goal of the proposed partnership - Midland College, Midland Memorial Hospital, University of North Texas and the UNT Health Science Center - is to identify students from the region who have an interest in becoming primary care physicians and to.guide them through an expedited educational pipeline requiring them to spend a minimal amount of time away from their community. The intent is for these students to return to complete their clinical education in Midland and the surrounding communities, with the eventual outcome of the candidates' pursuing primary care residencies in the Midland area.
