    IC2/BBR DellMed Innovation Report

    The University of Texas at Austin (UT) started something new in 2014, launching the first Tier One medical school in almost a century in the U.S. – the Dell Medical School (DellMed). In 2022, we have opportunity to look back and measure the impact of DellMed, which started almost a decade ago as a partnership between UT, the Dell Family, and residents of Central Texas. The Bureau of Business Research (BBR), an organized research unit of the ICInstitute at UT, conducted an independent study of the activities and associated impacts of DellMed in terms of community health, medical education, regional economy and innovation. In the first of a series of reports, the BBR describes its innovation findings, noting that DellMed is already having a higher-than-expected impact, catalyzing extensive cross-campus collaborations at UT while assisting translate new innovations into commercially attractive products, startup companies, and relationships with industry leaders. We appreciate the support of the Austin-Life Science community to explore what is working and what can be strengthened as DellMed plans its next chapter. The BBR hopes that the report provides valuable information, illustrative case studies, and a benchmark for future study of medical school innovation impact. Please visit this LINK: for reports, and other materials. For addition information or if you have any questions, contact Greg Pogue.
