The new Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin was created in unprecedented partnership with local taxpayers, who in 2012 voted to support a vision for better health in Austin and Travis County. That incredible connection to the community – coupled with the fact that it’s the first medical school in nearly 50 years to be built from the ground up at a Tier 1 research university – presents an incredible opportunity to rethink the role of academic medicine in improving health. “We’re about being an entirely new type of medical school – about taking an entirely new approach to academic medicine – and driving forward Austin as a model healthy city,” says Dean Clay Johnston. The medical school is at the heart of a burgeoning medical district in downtown Austin, and will welcome its first class of 50 students in June of 2016.
