Creating a New Kind of Doctor
Dell Med’s M.D. program trains physician leaders who are as comfortable taking on systemic challenges in health as they are caring for individual patients: 187 have graduated since 2020.
More than half of Dell Med graduates have stayed in Texas for residency. On average, Association of American Medical Colleges data shows that 54% of doctors who complete residency in a state will go on to practice there. In Texas, that average rises to 66%.
More Physicians in Training
Graduate medical education in Central Texas is expanding: In partnership with Ascension Seton, Dell Med has more than tripled its number of residency and fellowship programs — to 48 — since 2015.
The total number of residents and fellows will be 442 — a 70% increase — in academic year 2024.
More Doctors in Central — & all of — Texas
Of Dell Med’s 499 residency and fellowship graduates who have immediately entered practice since 2015, nearly half stayed in Central Texas.
More than two-thirds stayed in state, well above the national average of 54%.
