DELL MED SCHOOL INAUGURAL DEAN EXCITED ABOUT OPPORTUNITY
Karen Batory, TMA VP of public health and medical education, and I enjoyed an excellent visit with Clay Johnston, MD, the inaugural dean of the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas (UT) at Austin, and Ray Greenberg, MD, executive vice chancellor for health affairs at the UT System. Dr. Johnston discussed the rare opportunity that he and Austin physicians have to create a new medical school from scratch and his desire to build a unique institution. I believe that he and Dr. Greenberg were impressed with the breadth of services TMA offers. We encouraged them to take full advantage of TMA’s ongoing efforts to support physician workforce expansion, including the dire need to build more graduate medical education slots.
