UT medical school might cost $4.1 billion over 12 years

A proposed University of Texas medical school would start with a relatively modest annual budget of $23 million and grow in 12 years to a $510 million enterprise, according to cost estimates the American-Statesman obtained under the Texas Public Information Act.

The figures include debt financing of $233 million to build and equip a medical school campus with a classroom-administration building, a research facility and a unit for experiments involving mice and rats.

All told, the cost of the school for 12 years would be $4.1 billion.
