What is FACN?
 
The Forensic Assessment Center Network (FACN) is a coordinated group of physicians from six medical schools in Texas who are experts in child abuse and neglect.

A joint project of the Department of Family and Protective Services and the University of Texas Health Science Center-Houston, the FACN provides 24-hour support for CPS investigative staff via a statewide toll free number and a web-based system. FACN physicians also provide ongoing education to CPS workers about medical aspects of child maltreatment.



How does it work?
 
Our Mission
 
Contact Us
   
Physicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer questions and make recommendations on acute child maltreatment cases, and during regular business hours to review and discuss non-acute cases.

FACN physicians provide written consultations for the cases they review. In addition, FACN physicians provide education for CPS workers via in-person trainings, live electronic conferences, and interactive web-based modules (e-Learning).
 
Our mission is to promote the health and safety of Texas' most vulnerable children by providing expert consultation for suspected victims of child abuse and neglect.
