FORT WORTH – Construction crews have broken ground on the new four-story medical education building that will be the future home of the Anne Burnett Marion School of Medicine at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth’s Near Southside.
The Burnett School of Medicine will be located at the corner of West Rosedale and South Henderson streets in the heart of Fort Worth’s medical district. The building will support 240 medical students and hundreds of faculty and staff. Completion is expected in summer 2024 and additional facilities are expected as part of the site’s master plan.
The new building project in the city’s Near Southside neighborhood shows TCU’s continued investment in Fort Worth, Tarrant County and the state of Texas.
It’s been a scorching summer in Texas, so the Burnett School of Medicine enlisted the help of TCU Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr.; Stuart D. Flynn, M.D., Founding Dean of the Burnett School of Medicine; former Mayor Betsy Price and several medical students to create a “Groundbreaking” video in lieu of a traditional in-person event.
