University of Texas Dell Medical School Joins AMPATH Consortium
The Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin recently joined AMPATH as the newest Consortium member. The school’s Director of Global Health, Dr. Tim Mercer, has a long history with AMPATH. As a second-year medical student, he traveled to Eldoret for the first time as a Slemenda Scholar and later became the IU medicine team leader for two years. In his new role at Dell Medical School, he will work alongside Dr. Bill Tierney, Chair of the Department of Population Health and former President and CEO of the Regenstrief Institute. They will lead Dell Medical School’s AMPATH activities, namely in pediatric sub-specialties (starting with pediatric neurology), nursing, and population health.
Dr. Tim Mercer recently shared a blog post about what global health means to Dell Medical School.
