Training and education

The Family Medicine Residency will prepare you for an exciting and challenging career providing comprehensive primary care to one and all. Experience across specialties and in all settings enables you to meet the needs of your patients in continuity. The program is under the HCA Medical City Healthcare UNT-TCU Graduate Medical Education Consortium which is affiliated with the UNTHSC/TCOM and UNTHSC-TCU medical schools. Under our Consortium model, you will be able to experience an innovative curriculum in diverse practice settings and communities under the Medical City Healthcare system.

This approach allows residents to flourish due to exposure to a large diverse patient population and extensive clinical experience. We are committed to providing you with an excellent and safe clinical learning environment created by our knowledgeable and compassionate faculty.

During the three years of your residency, you will have your own continuity practice in all venues. You will gain expertise in office, hospital, emergency, home and residential settings.  You will experience multidisciplinary training with your colleagues in our General Surgery, OB/Gyn, Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine Residency programs in the Consortium.

You will choose a committee based on your interests to aid in shaping your leadership skills and help you stay ahead of the curve. You will participate in academic research projects, their presentations and publication. You will be a mentor to medical students and upon your graduation we hope you will consider practicing here with Medical City Healthcare.

  • Exceptionally experienced faculty who enjoy teaching and encourage hands-on learning

Curriculum and rotation schedule

­­Our Family Medicine Residency program focuses on evidence-based medicine, cost-efficient healthcare, a variety of procedures, and a culture of teaching coupled with robust scholarly activity.

 Our residency has built-in formal rotations for practice management, advocacy, as well as procedures, which means we not only prepare our residents to be physicians, but also successful leaders who will undoubtedly change the future of medicine while significantly contributing to our community.

Moreover, the ratio of our residents to Attendings while on specialty rotations is essentially 1:1. Our program allows residents exposure to the private practice side during hospital and specialty rotations while also getting the volume and pathology that comes with a continuity clinic housed in a community-based setting.
