What makes Medical City Arlington different from other training programs?
We are a new program and your participation will not only lead to an excellent medical education for yourself, but will also give you a chance to participate in building the program. Our administration and faculty are extremely flexible, highly accessible, and continually responsive to feedback in an effort to make the program the best it can be. Clinical skills and knowledge can be acquired anywhere, but we make it our mission to provide an environment where each resident feels like they are an individual and that we want them to succeed. You will never be just a face in the crowd – you will form a close relationship not only with your peers but also with the faculty and administration, including the program director.
