Last month the University of Texas at Austin launched construction of the new Dell Medical School in the southeastern portion of campus, near the current site of the University Medical Center Brackenridge and UT Austin’s School of Nursing.
The new medical school is consisting of three buildings that cost $334 million and include research, educational, and administrative facilities, as well as a medical office building and parking garage totaling 515,000 square feet.
The University of Texas, Austin is the first top-tier university in decades to establish a new medical school. The Dell Medical School will develop novel approaches for teaching, patient care, and research that build on a vision to transform both medical education and health care delivery. It will tap into Austin’s technology and research communities to find new ways to both educate medical professionals and deliver health services.
