Develop working agreements
The agreements in principle that were developed prior to the Proposition 1 tax election will be replaced by detailed working agreements that include Seton Healthcare Family, Central Health (the Travis County health care district) and the university. These agreements will cover the assets to be constructed for the Dell Medical School effort and ongoing funding of medical school education, residency training and the provision of medical services.
Seek approval of the UT System Board of Regents and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
The creation of the Dell Medical School requires approval of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to provide the doctor of medicine degree.
The Dell Medical School must seek accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education
This 70-year-old body oversees medical education in the United States. Schools must be accredited by the committee to be eligible for many federal grants, and students must study at an accredited school to qualify to take the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination. The first order of business for The University of Texas at Austin is to prepare an outline to identify the curriculum that the Dell Medical School will teach. This effort is underway.
