Dell Medical School’s 21st-century facilities anchor Austin’s Health District and form a laboratory for medical education, clinical care, research and health care redesign. Described by Texas Architect as “a place of collaboration and openness, a hive of learning,” our Health Learning Building serves as the primary academic home for students.

The magazine notes that a five-story open stairwell, visible from the courtyard through glass panels, creates a “dramatic social edge” fostering interaction and a sense of community. With the building’s sweeping views of Austin, public art that evokes healing, and space to facilitate the latest in medical education, it’s no wonder that Dell Med catches the eye of architects and future physician leaders alike.

Researchers from all over campus — some of the world’s best — make their home in the labs of the Health Discovery Building, where they also have access to advanced imaging equipment. A technology incubator helps bring their discoveries to market.
