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

The Global Health Elective Program is an opportunity for our Internal Medicine residents to explore medical practices in different countries.

We have temporarily suspended the Global health Elective due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but plan to resume this wonderful opportunity as soon as possible.

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.
