The Dell Medical School is on the verge of earning preliminary accreditation, taking us one step closer to welcoming our first class in July 2016.
While we can’t recruit students until meeting that milestone, it’s clear that Dell Medical School will be offering an extraordinary education at a very competitive cost.
Tuition and fees will be about 40 percent less than other top public medical schools around the country and about 61 percent less than top-tier private medical schools. On May 13, the UT System Board of Regents approved total tuition and fees for Dell Med students of $19,292 for Texas residents and $32,392 for nonresidents. The actual cost of providing a medical education averages about $90,000 per student per year.
We’re already excited about the future-focused curriculum that’s been crafted with the help of 250+ faculty, educational experts, physicians, students and others. With the Regents’ vote, the school will be able to provide a top-tier education, designed from scratch around the needs of 21st century health care, for a fraction of what it costs to attend other top medical schools around the country.
Dell Medical School tuition and fees are also in line with UT Southwestern and Baylor College of Medicine — two great Texas medical schools.
To address affordability, Dean Clay Johnston has also set a target of 30 percent scholarship support to help ensure that cost won’t be a determining issue for students.
