The Department of Health Social Work at Dell Medical School is the first of its kind in the nation providing an academic home for health social workers. This joint venture was a result of years of collaborative interprofessional engagement between the Steve Hicks School of Social Work and the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin. Presenters will discuss the creation of this department, the opportunities and challenges of having a department of social work in a medical school, initial outcomes and current programs. Strong social work leadership in healthcare administration and practice provides a supportive foundation for social workers to effectively address structural inequalities and discrimination in the healthcare system, the practice arena and within the profession of social work. The Department offers opportunities for both the Steve Hicks School of Social Work and Dell Medical School, including research collaboration, professional development, and student internships.
