Division of Global Health

The Division of Global Health in the Department of Population Health focuses on leveraging education, research and service to advance health equity for people in Central Texas and worldwide.

The division’s programming intersects the missions of Dell Medical School and Texas Global at The University of Texas at Austin to cultivate globally minded leaders; improve overall health outcomes in Texas and partner communities; and build cross-disciplinary collaboration to address social determinants of health.


Division Priorities

To strengthen local health systems and improve health for the underserved, the division focuses on long-term, mutually beneficial, bilateral relationships. Current efforts include working with academic partners in Kenya and seeking a medical school partner in Mexico.

The division is cultivating ways to engage a vibrant group of faculty who will work with our partners in host countries as well as adapt and apply internationally successful ideas in Central Texas.

Texas Global at The University of Texas at Austin is a key partner in creating opportunities for global health initiatives

Faculty members train medical students, residents and graduate students to be leaders in global health delivery, research, education and policy.


As a member of the AMPATH Consortium, Dell Med participates in faculty, trainee and student exchanges to benefit research, care and education in both Eldoret, Kenya, and Austin, Texas. Dell Med and the broader UT community are also actively developing institutional partnerships in Mexico.

The Central Texas community plays a vital role in advancing global health. By enriching Dell Med’s human and institutional capacities at a global level and sharing them with local partners, Austin and statewide communities lead innovation and improvement in overall population health.
