Graduate Medical Education
UT Southwestern Medical Center offers more than 25 residency programs and more than 60 clinical subspecialty/fellowship programs located on the Dallas campus and four family practice programs located in surrounding cities. We also have partnered with The Seton Family of Hospitals to oversee 10 residency programs in Austin.
All programs meet the accreditation standards of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). In addition to the ACGME-accredited programs, several departments offer clinical fellowships accredited by their specialty boards, including ABOG and ADA. There are also clinical fellowships approved directly by the Texas Medical Board. The program directors and their departments conduct the recruiting, training, evaluating, and managing of the programs. The Associate Dean for Medical Education and the Graduate Medical Education Committee are responsible for general and accreditation oversight of these training programs.
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 been named one of America’s best by U.S. News & World Report for the 12th year in a row. Other key programs are located at Children’s Medical Center, UT Southwestern University Hospitals, and other affiliated hospitals.
The Learning and Research Environment
For fellows, UT Southwestern has more than 2,500 research projects under way with annual funding of more than $340 million. Our strong commitment to research also extends to the amount of office and lab space dedicated to research interests—more than 660,000 square feet with additional facilities currently under construction.
