In 2020, UT Health Austin will continue its growth by opening an ophthalmology clinic and its Ambulatory Surgery Center, adding two to the 17 specialty clinics now offered.
Additionally, UT Health Austin’s Multiple Sclerosis clinic will relocate to the first floor of the Health Transformation Building this year.
Meanwhile, beginning in August of 2020, the University of Texas will begin offering a one-year master’s program in Design in Health. The program is offered jointly through UT’s College of Fine Arts and Dell Medical School.
“Our health care system is intrinsically flawed, and we need a new generation of care providers and design thinkers who can creatively solve health care’s most wicked problems from the inside,” said Stacey Chang, executive director of Dell Medical School’s Design Institute for Health, in a media release. Applications for the program are open through May 2020.
