Graduate Medical Education

UT Southwestern Medical Center offers more than 135 residency and subspecialty/fellowship programs on our Dallas campus and four family practice programs in surrounding cities. We have also partnered with The Seton Family of Hospitals to oversee 10 residency programs in Austin.


UT Southwestern offers over 90 residency and fellowship programs that meet all the standards set by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), 39 clinical fellowships approved by the Texas Medical Board and 8 fellowships accredited by other clinical and professional organizations are also available.

Program directors and individual departments recruit, train, evaluate, and manage the programs. The Graduate Medical Education Committee, the Designated Institutional Official, and the Associate and Assistant Deans for Graduate Medical Education provide general and accreditation oversight.

Unmatched Experience

The breadth of experience fellows and residents receive at UT Southwestern is unmatched. Parkland Memorial Hospital – the primary adult teaching hospital for faculty physicians – has consistently been named one of America’s best by U.S. News & World Report. Other key programs are located at Children’s Health℠ , UT Southwestern University Hospitals, and other affiliated hospitals.

The Learning and Research Environment

UT Southwestern's faculty and residents annually provide care to more than 90,000 hospitalized patients and oversee nearly 2 million outpatient visits. They also provide $123 million in unreimbursed professional services annually.

The faculty includes six Nobel Laureates–four of whom are active faculty members, 22 members of the prestigious National Academy of Sciences, and 18 members of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine), a component of the NAS.

Funding from federal agencies, foundations, companies, and private donors provide approximately $415.5 million per year to fund about 3,300 research projects.

And as international medical and scientific needs grow, so too will UT Southwestern. We will keep working to remain at the pinnacle of medical institutions worldwide.
