During their training, UT Southwestern residents become proficient in a number of procedures. The first step is practicing in our state-of-the-art simulation lab, one of the largest in the country.

Our Simulation Center trains residents using high-fidelity models and simulated environments to prepare them or scenarios they will encounter at our three hospitals.

Global Health Elective

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the Global Health Elective was temporarily halted. We are actively reviving our Global Health opportunities and hope to offer international rotation options for our residents soon.

Currently, resident have the opportunity to rotate at the Indian Health Service in Albuquerque, NM which allows residents to immerse themselves in the care of a historically underserved community. 

Online Curricula

UT Southwestern provides residents access to online modules from the Johns Hopkins Ambulatory Curriculum as well as the ACP Medicine Weekly Curriculum for additional learning opportunities. First-year residents are provided with subscriptions to NEJM Knowledge+. Second- and third-year residents are provided access to the ACP’s popular MKSAP resources in preparation for ABIM Boards. In addition to these public resources, all Internal Medicine Noon Conference lectures are recorded and archived on our residency website where housestaff can review prior lectures and faculty-recommended readings.
