The Dell Medical School Leading EDGE Curriculum is designed to train not just doctors, but physician leaders who are as comfortable taking on transformational health challenges as they are caring for patients. Every curricular innovation is designed to focus students on the distinct challenges of 21st-century health and medicine, and to engage students’ creativity in solving those challenges.

The plan for an innovative, highly integrated educational program incorporates guided self-directed learning, new technologies, interprofessional education, and health care delivery systems education. Students have the benefit of receiving a core leadership curriculum and the opportunity to pursue individualized paths to that leadership, created for each student based on experience and interest.

Generous opportunities with sufficient flexibility to pursue population health, health care redesign or translational/basic science research, scholarship, and dual degrees are integrated into the program leading to the Doctor of Medicine degree.
