About This Program
UT Health Austin’s Post-COVID-19 Program aims to provide comprehensive medical care, research, and education for persons with post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC), in which patients experience new or persistent symptoms months after their initial infection. PASC is also known as “post-COVID” or “long COVID,” and some patients with PASC often refer to themselves as “long-haulers”. People with long COVID experience a wide variety of symptoms, including fatigue, shortness of breath, difficulty with thinking and concentration, neurologic symptoms, and anxiety.
At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. The Post-COVID-19 Program care team includes internal medicine specialists, neurologists, advanced practice providers, nurses, social workers, and more, who work together to create an individualized recovery plan.
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 illness 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.
Appointments with the Post-COVID-19 Program are available by referral only. Speak with your primary care provider to request a referral.
