Dell Med Update
Medical Students Today, Physician Leaders Tomorrow 

Looking back at the first installment of Dell Med’s signature Growth Year, it’s clear that students’ approach to medicine has been changed forever. Dell Med’s third year allows students to make progress toward long-term goals and collaborate to improve health locally, whether by completing a large, independent project or earning a dual degree — all while continuing clinical practice in primary care, family and community medicine. 

Whether they’ll be leaders in academic medicine, research, community health or something else, the students of #DellMedFirstClass are now preparing to kick off transformative careers. 

Follow four students’ experiences throughout the Growth Year.
