Dell Medical School

Building a new model for improving health.

As the first medical school in decades to be built from the ground up at a leading research university, Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin offers a historic opportunity. Building upon the great strengths of UT Austin and UT System, we are harnessing the power of innovation, technology and teamwork to modernize academic medicine, improve clinical care delivery models and foster a thriving research environment—all with a focus on improving health and making Austin a model healthy city.
