M.D. Program

All sitting at a classroom table, a Dell Med instructor looks on at students working on their laptops.

At Dell Medical School — one of the newest fully accredited medical schools at a top-tier U.S. research university — students gain the core competencies to practice modern medicine while also learning how to become better leaders, communicators, partners and caregivers. Training includes a focus on value-based health care, team-based learning, space for self-discovery, expanded clinical opportunities, engagement with community partners and more.

This shift in the way doctors are educated equips students with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to transform the health care system and improve outcomes locally.
