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. These 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.
We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin in addition to community healthcare professionals so we can learn more about this emerging disease and develop diagnostic and therapeutic guidance as well as referral pathways to specialty providers.
Case Conference Series
The Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is hosting a case conference series known as the Austin PASC Collaborative during which community healthcare professionals can present cases to and receive feedback on diagnosis, management, and the emerging science of PASC 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 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.
Our goal is to help patients recover from the lasting effects of COVID-19 through rehabilitation and other therapies designed to restore their function and quality of life.
Appointments with the Post-Covid-19 Program are available by referral only.
UT Health Austin is housed in the Health Transformation Building (HTB). The HTB is located in downtown Austin, TX on The University of Texas at Austin campus and neighbors the Dell Medical School research and learning buildings as well as the Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas.
