Patient Care

In the health care arena, the family physician serves as a patient's “quarterback” through managing day-to-day and overall care. Should the need arise, family physicians can coordinate and advocate for the services of specialists such as cardiologists, orthopaedic surgeons, dermatologists, pulmonologists, oncologists, or any type of specialist.

Our faculty have daily working relationships with hundreds of specialists at UT Southwestern Medical Center affiliated hospitals, and next to them, every day, are our residents and fellows, learning how to be the best at what they do.
