University of Texas Collaborative on Population Health Innovation and Improvement (UT-CoPHII) is a population health learning collaborative of all UT Health Science Centers and the two new UT medical schools that will result in actionable strategic plans for each institution and the UT System as a whole.  Project leads from each institution have been selected by their university’s president to ensure strategic alignment with the leadership of their institutions. Project leads serve at the level of Vice President or Dean at their respective institutions and are working across their University and with community partners to develop these Population Health strategic plans. This effort will identify community needs, address health disparities, and identify population health priorities for collaborative projects across the UT System. 

Components of UT Co-PHII

  • Each UT institution has a project lead.
  • UT Health campuses participate on a monthly basis, collaborating and sharing information related to the establishment of a Population Health strategic plan for each institution and for UT System.
  • Dr. Melissa Valerio, Regional Dean of the School of Public Health, San Antonio campus, serves as a Chancellor’s Health Fellow to assist in this project and compile a Hispanic and Border Health section of the UT System Population Health Strategic Plan.
  • Each UT Institution is provided a graduate student to assist on this project.
