UT-RGV medical school dean announced
EDINBURG, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Dr. Francisco Fernandez will head the medical school and work out of Edinburg.
He was a professor and chairman of psychiatry and neurosciences at the University of South Florida. Fernandez had worked in Texas before, having worked at Baylor for more than a decade.
"He knows what it takes to run a medical school, he's got one of the rotations that's ready to go, he speaks Spanish, I think he's an ideal candidate," UT-Pan American President Dr. Robert Nelsen said.
