The much-anticipated TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine has partnered with a leading online medical education platform to integrate technology into teaching.

Osmosis, a company founded by former Johns Hopkins medical students, will collaborate with the School of Medicine to provide a technology-first approach to learning.

The approach limits traditional modes of teaching that involves a lecture-based curriculum.

“With technology like Osmosis to aid their learning, our medical students will have the skills needed to practice in an era in which medical knowledge is moving forward at an exponential rate,” said Stuart D. Flynn, M.D., founding dean of the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine. “We’re training the next generation of physicians to be inspired by life-long learning, with the patient at the center of our mission.”

The two Fort Worth educational institutions, TCU and UNTHSC, will open the new medical school in Fort Worth in July 2019.

About 60 medical students have enrolled for classes at the new medical school.

The courses will focus on delivering compassion and empathy training, along with innovative ways to reduce stress for the medical students, according to the medical school.

“Osmosis is thrilled to be working with the faculty and students at the Fort Worth medical school to achieve their mission of training Empathetic Scholars,” said Owen Willis, Chief Operating Officer at Osmosis. “We’re drawn to collaborations that seek to improve the way future healthcare professionals learn medicine, both in terms of how content is delivered and the supportive activities that enhance their experiences in the classroom and clinic.”
