Posted by on Thursday, January 23, 2020 in Uncategorized .

The Dell Medical School Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care Orthopaedic Value-Based Care Fellowship gives exceptional medical students an extraordinary opportunity to learn about and investigate topics relevant to value based health care payment and delivery models through first-hand exposure to the UT Health Austin Musculoskeletal Institute. The Institute opened in October 2017 and provides an innovative, multidisciplinary, team-based approach to delivering musculoskeletal care for a wide range of patients including vulnerable, high needs and underserved populations.

The Fellow will work with Department faculty on research projects related to the design, implementation, and dissemination of value-based care models, outcome measurement (including the effect of interventions on patient-reported outcomes), costs of care, impact of psychosocial aspects in musculoskeletal illness, advances in shared-decision making and patient-provider engagement, and the application of digital health solutions.
