Osteopathic medical school in Fort Smith gets a boost

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2014 at 11:56 AM

Arkansas Business reports a $14 million anonymous gift to add to $58 million and property already pledged to establish a school of osteopathic medicine in Fort Smith. The original money came from a foundation established from proceeds of the sale of the Sparks Medical Center to a hospital management company.

As yet, Arkansas State Universitywhich also is trying to establish an osteopathic medical school (a school whose need has been questioned by leaders at UAMS), hasn't reported comparable infusions. But it has a publicly financed campus with available building space to start and a partner in the business in New York.
