The opportunity to start from scratch. A vision and mission focused on creating a vital, inclusive health ecosystem — one that revolutionizes how people get and stay healthy.
This is the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin — the first medical school in decades to be built from the ground up at a top-tier research university. Located at the heart of a burgeoning health district in downtown Austin, we celebrate the diversity, creativity and innovation around us and are connected in deep and meaningful ways to the greater Austin and Travis County communities. These include the families we serve and care for; key partners like Seton Healthcare Family and Central Health; and a diverse array of collaborators including local physicians, nonprofits and entrepreneurs.
Please join us in welcoming our inaugural class of 50 students — #DellMedFirstClass.
