Message from the Chief Residents
Thank you for visiting our website! Our Family Medicine Residency Program offers a unique urban experience in primary care for underserved populations. Being located at UT Southwestern, we have the benefits of working in a top-notch academic center with internationally renowned specialists (and Nobel laureates), yet still maintain our autonomy as a large community program. We get the county hospital experience through our Parkland clinic and hospital service, and the private health care experience through our William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital services.
Our Family Medicine Clinic is our home, where faculty and residents come together to work and learn from each other. Everyone brings unique perspectives and life experiences to the table. We love that our schedule offers plenty of flexibility allowing time to explore our interests both inside and outside of medicine. Residents are encouraged to pursue personal medical interests and build their own unique concentrations. Dallas is a great city that offers a low cost of living with world-class sports teams, cultural attractions, tourist sites, and (lots of) amazing food!
Our training program will arm you with all the tools you need to become a knowledgeable and versatile physician in both ambulatory and hospital settings. It is hugely dynamic as we have direct access to fellowships in Geriatric Medicine, Community Medicine, and Palliative Care. We have several tracks designed to strengthen your areas of interest which include Sports Medicine, Integrative Medicine, OMM clinic, and Global Health track. Our residency focuses on physician wellness where you can join us on our fun retreats, zumba, yoga, and bhangra classes as well as take a “walk in the woods” at Cedar Ridge Reserve with our faculty. We hope you consider our program and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Victoria and Paulina
