The Design Institute for Health is a first-of-its-kind initiative dedicated to applying a creative, design-based approach to the nation’s health care challenges and rapidly integrating that perspective into medical education and community health programs. The Design Institute for Health is a collaboration between Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin. As a key resource reaching across the medical school’s functions and projects, the Design Institute aims to meaningfully change health care—and improve the community’s health—by focusing on three initial areas: a creative, collaborative model for improving health; platforms to enable new innovations in health; and a resource for design execution.

The School of Design and Creative Technologies supports two fellowships for graduate students in Design at the Design Institute for Health.
