UT Austin School of Nursing
The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing has been a partner in the CTSA since its inception. The School ranks in the top tier of U.S. nursing schools in NIH funding (#10 this year, #7 last year) and has an outstanding track record in clinical research, which comprises the vast majority of its NIH funding. The school is the only top tier nursing school in the nation that is not located on a clinical campus. Several faculty have joint appointments in UT Southwestern's Division of Community Health Sciences.
Faculty with joint appointments at UT Southwestern will direct and teach a new course in community-based participatory research, and provide collaboration and consultation in community studies for clinical investigators. UT Austin School of Nursing will also participate as partners in our planned research facility at Seton Medical Center.
