Dr. Clay Johnston left Dell Medical School in September 2021 to start Harbor Health medical practice.

Past Dell Medical School dean ‘disrupting’ care with Harbor Health

Clay Johnston, the first dean of the University of Texas Dell Medical School, could have retired or gone to work at another university. Instead, he’s helping to launch a different model of primary medical care with Harbor Health.

Johnston stepped down from Dell Medical School in September 2021, after leading the school since January 2014. The school just named its second dean, Dr. Claudia F. Lucchinetti from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. She will start Dec. 1.

Harbor Health, which has both pediatric and adult primary care physicians, has opened two locations, one in Round Rock and one in Central Austin. It has more planned for Kyle and other Austin neighborhoods as well as mobile clinics with one or two exam rooms each.
