Post-COVID-19 Program

Health Transformation Building, 1st Floor 1601 Trinity Street, Bldg. A, Suite 1.616, Austin, TX 78712

About This Program

UT Health Austin’s Post-COVID-19 Program aims to create an educational community in which healthcare professionals can come together to learn more about post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC) infection, an increasingly recognized syndrome in which patients continue to experience symptoms of COVID-19 months after initial infection. PASC is also known as “post-COVID” or “long COVID,” and many patients with PASC often refer to themselves as “long-haulers,” although the scientific community has not fully agreed on an official name for these patients. COVID-19 “long-haulers” experience a wide variety of symptoms, including fatigue, persistent dyspnea, neurocognitive changes, depression, and anxiety. We are committed to expanding the collective capacity to care for these patients across Central Texas by developing clinical guidance and educational support for frontline healthcare professionals.

Case Conference Series

The Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin hosts case conferences, which are part of a series known as the Austin PASC Collaborative. During these case conferences, community healthcare professionals can present cases to and receive feedback on diagnosis, management, and the emerging science of post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC) infection from an expert panel consisting of specialists across internal medicine, neurology, pulmonology, and rheumatology as well as behavioral and mental health.

If you are a healthcare professional interested in participating in these case conferences and joining the learning community, please complete the registration form below.

If you are a healthcare professional interested in submitting a case to receive feedback from our expert panel, please fill out the case submission form below.

Clinical Guidance and Diagnostic Pathways

Check back regularly for information regarding the latest clinical guidance and diagnostic pathways, including diagnostic workup, treatment options, and indications for referral, which will become available as we learn about this disease in real time.

Treatment Approach

At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. This means you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines caring for you in one place to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Post-COVID-19 Program care team includes internal medicine specialists, neurologists, nurses, advanced practice providers, social workers, and more, who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.

We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin in addition to community healthcare professionals to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to learn more about this emerging disease and develop diagnostic and therapeutic guidance as well as referral pathways to specialty providers. Advanced imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.
