The Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin will improve health in Travis County and throughout the country by training new physicians, providing treatment in a new teaching hospital and conducting research to expand knowledge of medicine and medical technology.
Scheduled to accept its first class in 2016, it will offer a unique opportunity in medical education. As part of the campus of one of the nation’s leading research universities, it will pursue excellence in transdisciplinary and interprofessional education.
As part of a visionary partnership with Seton Healthcare Family, a regional health care system, and Central Health, a public health care district, a new teaching hospital will be constructed adjacent to the new Dell Medical School. By designing these facilities concurrently within an integrated complex, the effort represents an unprecedented opportunity to create the best possible environment to respond to community needs and provide patient care.
Starting here, in Austin, cooperation among teachers, researchers and health care providers in state-of-the-art facilities will produce the knowledge, management systems and skilled doctors who will improve the lives of millions of people around the world.
