Message from the Chief Residents

Thank you for visiting our website! Our program offers a unique experience in primary care serving both the underserved and community populations here in Dallas. We have the benefits of working at a top academic center with internationally renowned specialists, yet still maintain our autonomy as a large community program. 

One of the highlights of our program is the combination of robust training done in both the Parkland Health and Hospital System (the public hospital serving Dallas County) and the Southwestern Health Resources system (a collaboration between UT Southwestern and Texas Health Resources). These combined experiences prepare our residents for a plethora of practice opportunities after training. 

Our residency program provides the integral tools you need to become a knowledgeable and versatile physician in both ambulatory and hospital settings. Additionally, we offer special tracks and personalized electives such as integrative medicine, community medicine, and global health, allowing you to personalize your learning and strengthen your areas of interest. 

What makes our program truly special, however, is our people. The faculty consists of exceptional physicians who go above and beyond to teach and care for others. Furthermore, the diversity of the people within the program allows us to be exposed to and learn from a multitude of unique perspectives. Together, our goal is to connect with our patients and provide excellent care to our community. 

While we do offer an array of wonderful opportunities, without prioritizing your wellness, achieving the robust training we aspire to provide may be challenging. This is why the chiefs, along with our leadership team, are dedicated to advocating for opportunities and resources that foster your well-being. If you value these attributes in your ideal family medicine residency program, we encourage you seriously consider applying. Thank you for your interest in our program, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
