The TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences - Dallas Center isn’t a traditional college campus as much as it’s an efficient environment for an excellent health sciences education.
We sit in the heart of the Southwestern Medical District encompassed by four hospitals and faculty who are experts in their fields. Dallas is where graduate students earn their master’s or doctoral degree. Courses are a mix of online and face-to-face, depending on the program.
