They're What Change Looks Like
We're excited about the future. Pardon the pun, but we're feeling pretty bullish about it. Why? Our students.
The Business of Healthcare
In 2016, we started the Business of Healthcare Certificate Program, open to all undergraduate majors, and in just two short years it has become the 2nd largest certificate on the 40 Acres. For students starting in 2020 or later, we are transitioning this program to a minor. Our students are among the best and brightest on The University of Texas campus, and they are looking to make a difference. Future health care professionals in our program are getting an early exposure to the business side of their future from one of the top business schools in the country. Our students in business, liberal arts, communication, and engineering are learning about the health care ecosystem and the opportunities for innovation at every level of the system.
The Texas MBA Healthcare Concentration
Our Texas MBA Healthcare Concentration, part of the full-time Texas MBA program, focuses on innovation, ecosystem, and analytics. It includes three courses taught by award-winning Texas McCombs faculty, one in partnership with UT Dell Med's Texas Health Catalyst, and a pharma innovation and commercialization course in partnership with the College of Pharmacy's Drug Dynamics Institute.
MBA Healthcare Innovation Fellows
The Health Innovation Fellows provide an avenue for students to experience in-depth health care programming to dissect and debate the many complexities of the U.S. health care system beyond the classroom.
Campus to Community
Campus to Community
We have over 17 community projects this semester that pair our best and brightest graduate and undergraduate students with local and regional health care providers to work on real-world issues in real-time. These providers include Dell Medical School, clinics around the state, Dell-Seton Medical Center and some of its clinics. Here's just a few of the projects we have going for Spring 2019:
- Business analysis and market validation for an-home STI testing kits
- Clinic evaluation and patient surveys
- Safe sleep practices and patient observation
- Opioid disposal and optimal opioid stewardship
- Length of stay study
- Patient outreach for HIV clinic change
- Stroke treatment and evaluation
We are always on the lookout for real-world problems for our students to work on, either as practicum projects in our Healthcare Management or Social Entrepreneurship courses or as summer internships.
