This was an exciting week as we formalized a partnership at Fort Hood with the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center for our College of Medicine students. Beginning in the fall, students will have the opportunity to engage in clinical rotations onsite at a state-of-the-art facility opened just last year and learn from physicians who treat soldiers, veterans and their families.
This is exciting in that it both honors our military heritage as a university and promotes our key tenets of transformational learning, discovery and innovation and service to others with impact. I am grateful to Dr. Carrie Byington, dean of the Texas A&M College of Medicine, SVP of the Texas A&M Health Science Center and vice chancellor for health services at The Texas A&M University System for her hard work to make this happen, and to the great leaders at Ft. Hood who joined us for the announcement: Colonel Mark Thompson, Colonel James Lucas, and Colonel Todd Fox.
On a personal note, I would like to wish Lieutenant General Paul E. Funk II, Commander of the III Corps and Ft. Hood, a safe deployment for soldiers tomorrow to Iraq and Syria.
