"The hospitals are wonderful places to train because of their size and the volume of patients. The entire staff is all about getting students involved in patient care and having them be part of the team," said Rachel Jamison, M.D., Class of 2010.

At UT Southwestern Medical School, the clinical portion of student training is conveniently close at hand. Located in the Southwestern Medical District, it is home to two UT Southwestern University Hospitals – William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and Zale Lipshy University Hospital – as well as Parkland Memorial Hospital and Children's Medical Center Dallas. All are used to train UT Southwestern students.
