Description

The future of medical education, care and research is taking shape at the new Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin – the first medical school in nearly 50 years to be built from the ground up at a Tier 1 research university. Built by a team of innovators, the school has a vision for a vital, inclusive health ecosystem and a mission focused on revolutionizing the way people get and stay healthy. In starting from scratch, it also has the opportunity to Rethink Everything. “We’re about being an entirely new type of medical school – about taking an entirely new approach to academic medicine – and driving forward Austin as a model healthy city,” says Dean Clay Johnston. Dell Medical School was created in unprecedented partnership with local taxpayers, who in 2012 voted to support a vision for better health in Austin and Travis County. It’s at the heart of a burgeoning medical district in downtown Austin, and will welcome its first class of 50 students in June of 2016. Learn more at http://dellmedschool.utexas.edu.
