About

Stacey Chang is a designer, an unintentional academic, and an unapologetic ringleader for novel solutions to age-old dilemmas in health. He serves as founder and executive director of the Design Institute for Health, a radical collaboration between Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin. This first-of-its-kind institution provokes systemic change in health through design.

The Design Institute’s expertise is integrated into Dell Med’s revolutionary medical education and training program, as well as applied in launching the first master of arts degree in design in health in the nation in the fall of 2020. Through design-led approaches, the Institute’s work engages unlikely cross-sector collaborators to better coordinate systems of health and create models that can be replicated across our community and beyond.

Until 2014, Chang served as the managing director of the healthcare practice at IDEO, the global design and innovation firm. Clients included governments, research institutions, hospitals, pharma, insurance, medtech, and all the upstarts trying to rewrite the script, in both established and emerging markets.

Chang has served as a TEDMED Editorial Advisory Board member, and a Thought Leader for NEJM Catalyst. He holds degrees in engineering from MIT and Stanford.
