A New Chapter
The University of Texas at Austin has long been home to standout health-related programs like nursing, pharmacy, biomedical engineering, and research into addiction.
In 2013, UT opened a new chapter in the story of American health care by launching the first new medical school at an established Tier 1 university in nearly 50 years, Dell Medical School. Its first students have been introduced to a new way of understanding medicine and thinking about their educations. And new waves of philanthropy — evident in the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, the Livestrong Cancer Institutes, and the Mitchel and Shannon Wong Eye Institute — have further expanded the reach of our medical school.
Faculty and students from our schools of business, social work, fine arts, communications and others collaborate with health-focused peers to transform policy and the economics of health care and value-based care. We want to improve patient outcomes, reduce costs, and give families, caregivers and providers a better experience.
Collaboration is Key
UT partners with more than 75 industry and government organizations and develops outcome-focused technologies, procedures and treatments like intelligent sensors for at-home heart monitoring and new approaches to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Educating Physician Leaders
Created from scratch, Dell Med’s unique curriculum is designed to focus students on the distinct challenges of 21st-century health and medicine.
Another Year, Another Nobel Laureate
For the last two years, a Texas alumnus has won the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine.
