Our aim: For you to aim higher!
The overall goal of our program is to help you become the best family physician that you can be. The two unique Family Medicine Centers and the world-renowned Texas Medical Center provide a dynamic medical environment for developing not only strong clinical skills, but research, academic, and advocacy as well. Your opportunities are as broad as your abilities. Are you willing to take the challenge?
Our overall education goals are to train residents to be capable family physicians with the following attributes:
- Proficient in all competencies as required and defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education
- Worthy and understanding of the principles of the American Academy of Family Physicians
- Dedicated to be lifelong learning and at all times maintaining the certifying standards of the American Board of Family Medicine
Our unique context equals your unique opportunity.
The program will equip you with skills to excel as a member of a multidisciplinary team within a NCQA level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home and its neighborhood, caring for patients in the hospital, the continuity clinic, nursing home and home settings. You will perform common clinical procedures while adhering to patient safety standards. You will achieve tremendous personal growth that will prepare you for whatever setting you choose: academic or private; privileged or underserved; rural, urban, suburban or global settings; group or solo practice. You will also become prepared to teach and inspire others to become Family Medicine physicians through advocacy and role modeling.
Your commitment to the comprehensive care of patients will take you across the spectrum of acute illness and chronic medical problems and preventive health strategies, to the intricacies of life in a family. All of this is a factor in family medicine. Join us for the ride of your life!
