The school will begin accepting applications for the 30 places of the Faculty of Medicine next year, and they expect a group of candidates competitive, according to KHOU.

"It's going to be a different school with a different curriculum," Dr. Stephen Spann, dean of the future medical school, told KHOU. "Second, it's new, and that gives students the opportunity to help shape the learning environment, and third, for this first class, they have to pay tuition for four years."

Students who are from Texas and want to practice medicine in the state will have preference, Spann told KHOU.

"Student debt is the number one deterrent for students when they apply to medical school," Renu Khator, president of the University of Houston, said in a news release. "This generous gift will allow these students the opportunity to attend and, ultimately, to lead the future medical staff."

Construction of the school has not yet begun. You must also obtain accreditation, KHOU reported.
