Mission & Vision
As a new medical school created in partnership with our community and built on the foundation of a top-tier research university, Dell Medical School is redefining the academic health environment.
From our Leading EDGE curriculum to our focus on measurably improving health locally and our bold vision for accelerating research, our team is rethinking everything.
I’m not interested in creating just another medical school, but in creating a medical school that really represents what we want health — and health education — to be in the next century.
