Dell Medical School

Shaping the Future of Health

 

You’re the reason we’re here. Dell Medical School works to make health care better and more accessible for you and everyone else. To tackle the health problems your doctor alone cannot. To build a better system to support innovation, economic development and opportunity for all.

 

A new era of health requires a new kind of physician leader. At Dell Med, students gain the skills to practice medicine while learning how to become better leaders, communicators, partners and caregivers. When they graduate, they will be as comfortable taking on large-scale health care challenges as they are caring for patients.

 

There is no better time to give. The first $55,000 in gifts for student scholarships will be matched dollar for dollar by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. Additionally, the first $5,000 in gifts to the Department of Psychiatry will be matched dollar for dollar by UT alumni Mark and Paige Blake. Your gift today will have double the impact!

 

 

 

Support Tomorrow’s Physician Leaders

 

Your gift to Dell Med scholarships helps us attract and train bright students who are passionate about leading big changes in health. Because of our generous supporters, every Dell Med student receives tuition support. This allows them to pursue career paths where they can serve their community rather than high-paying specialties to pay off loans. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of our students and the patients they will serve.

 

“Without scholarship support, this path simply wouldn’t have been possible for me. I’m married with two young boys. Because of you, I will graduate with little to no debt — a meaningful achievement for me since it was that very financial barrier that stopped me from pursuing my dream in the first place.” — Brooke Hergert, second-year Dell Med student

 

 

 

Invest in a New Approach

 

Dell Med is revolutionizing how people get and stay healthy. With a unique approach to medical education, a focus on measurably improving health locally and a bold vision for accelerating research, we are rethinking everything. Gifts of any size to Dell Med’s areas of greatest need advance this important work.

 

“We’re not creating just another medical school. We’re building what we want health — and health education — to be in the next century.” — S. Claiborne “Clay“ Johnston, M.D., Ph.D., Dean

 

 

Help Those Living with Mental Illness Thrive  

 

Mental illness affects one in five people. By advancing research and pioneering a new clinical model at the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, Dell Med’s Department of Psychiatry is changing how we understand, diagnose, treat and prevent mental illness. With your support, we can make a difference in the lives of patients and their families.

 

During 40 for Forty, your gift will have double the impact thanks to UT alumni Mark and Paige Blake, who are matching the first $5,000 in gifts to the Department of Psychiatry dollar for dollar.
