Health Leadership Apprentice Program
Dell Med is seeking ambitious, innovative individuals to collaborate with faculty and staff on efforts tied to the school’s work in health care transformation. For those who aspire to be a health care leader, join the Health Leadership Apprentice (HLA) Program.
Areas of Impact
Apprentices learn how to take their ideas from the drawing board to the streets of Austin in support of Dell Med’s work to improve health in the local community as a model for the nation.
Apprentices coordinate and participate in a number of community outreach programs that teach kids of all ages in the Austin community about being healthy and spark an interest in health care.
Apprentices get first-hand experience in the leading-edge health care research projects of Dell Med faculty and contribute as team members to advancing various fields in medicine.
HLA students are assigned to one of several “houses,” where they work as a team with five other members of the class to propose and design a project based on Dell Med’s Community-Driven Initiatives.
HLA Students can partner with the incredible faculty at Dell Med on their research and health projects that are leading the world of medicine.
After their first year in the HLA program, students are encouraged to pursue self-initiated projects (SIP) based on their house project, a faculty/staff opportunity or an original idea.
SIPs allow students to work directly alongside Dell Med faculty and staff to create community, education, research and clinical care initiatives.
Apprentices will hear from faculty and health care leaders in intimate settings where they can ask questions, get answers and discover what it means to transform health care at Dell Med.
