PMCH Seminar - Chris Webb, PhD - Dell Medical School

  • Date(s): November 17, 2016 12:00 PM – November 17, 2016 01:00 PM

Rethinking Everything at the Dell Medical School

If you could start a new medical school from scratch, what would you do differently?  Knowing what you know now, how would you design the organization to achieve the goals of improving health?  These are some of the questions facing leadership of the new medical school at UT Austin.

The vision of the Dell Medical School is to build a vital, inclusive health ecosystem. The mission is focused on transforming the way people get and stay healthy.  The medical school was created in unprecedented partnership with local taxpayers, who in 2012 voted to support a vision for better health in Austin and Travis County. The school, which is at the heart of a burgeoning health district in downtown Austin, welcomed its first class of 50 students in July 2016.

Dr. Webb will present a “big picture” overview of the plans and aspirations of the new medical school and provide some additional details indicating where new health-related research efforts may be headed at UT Austin.
