The University of Texas at Austin has named its first Dell Medical School dean.
It’s Dr. S. Claiborne “Clay” Johnston, who currently serves as associate vice chancellor at the University of California, San Francisco.
Johnston is “a practicing neurologist who specializes in preventing and treating stroke. He will begin March 1 at the Dell Medical School, which plans to welcome its first class of students in fall 2016,” according to a news release.
“There is no greater opportunity for improving health care than by building a medical school from the ground up at a top institution like UT and in an entrepreneurial city like Austin. With a deeply committed community, it’s remarkable Austin hasn’t had a medical school until now. The opening of Dell Medical School gives the city the chance to approach medical education differently and more effectively than ever before,” Johnston said in a news release.
