Dell Medical School is building on a strong foundation created by a rich history of local organizations working to improve health in Central Texas. Along with the University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Austin, we are proud to call these health care, education and community groups our partners.
Created by Travis County voters in 2004, Central Health is the local public entity that provides health care coverage for the underserved and uninsured through an extensive network of providers.
CommUnityCare brings integrated physical and mental health services to Travis County residents, including the historically underserved, and works closely with Dell Med faculty and residents to improve care.
Huston-Tillotson University and Dell Med work together in a number of areas, from addressing mental health challenges in historically underserved populations to engaging Huston-Tillotson students in the medical school’s apprenticeship program.
Integral Care improves the lives of adults and children living with mental illness, substance use disorder and intellectual and developmental disabilities in Travis County. The organization collaborates with Dell Med on efforts to educate students, improve care and expand local resources.
In 2013, the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation invested in Dell Med as part of its commitment to improve the health of Central Texans. The foundation continues to support the school’s work.
Dell Med is working with Travis County school districts, including Austin, Del Valle and others, to support a robust health professions pipeline for local students, particularly those traditionally underrepresented in medicine and other health professions.
