RIO GRANDE VALLEY - Plans to build a new medical school in the Rio Grande Valley and merge border campuses in the University of Texas System has been approved by the Texas legislature. The approved bill would open a yet-unnamed medical school as early as 2016.
UT regents have already pledged $100 million to the project. The bill unifies campuses in Edinburg and Brownsville with a Harlingen health center, which is currently operated by the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.
