Meeting Room 8
Breakout Sessions

Moderator: Anne McGrath, Managing Editor, U.S. News & World Report

This summer, students began taking classes at the University of Texas’s Dell Medical School in Austin, where the curriculum features a strong focus on collaboration, student-led projects on redesigning healthcare delivery, and other innovative techniques. UT’s school is one of a host of new institutions cropping up with an eye toward reshaping medical education for a rapidly changing healthcare landscape. Several other cutting-edge medical schools are each seeking to train primary care physicians in heavy demand in their regions and nationally. And Kaiser Permanente is planning its own medical school that will concentrate on training caregivers in new technology, working in nontraditional settings, and more. This session will feature leaders of several emerging medical schools that are creating their curricula from the ground up to better prepare the doctors of tomorrow.
