About Our Program
Welcome to the UTHealth McGovern Medical School Family Medicine Residency Program!
We are excited about the direction of Family Medicine and the many opportunities this specialty offers you. Our goal is to prepare you to use your knowledge, skills, and personal strengths to provide personalized patient care.
As a university-based Family Medicine residency program in one of the most diverse cities in the US, we have the resources to train residents in full-spectrum care, scholarship, and physician-leadership. You will have the opportunity to work in both underserved and private settings. The diverse patient population and large patient volume prepare our residents to thrive in multiple environments.
With an emphasis on patient-centered and evidence-based medicine, our residents learn from world-class teachers and leaders in the Texas Medical Center, community-based hospitals and clinics. Our highly skilled and dedicated faculty are deeply involved in resident education. Using the ACGME milestone and PCMH models, we emphasize the continuity of care and management of acute, chronic, and preventative medical issues.
We will challenge you to be your best by nurturing the curious learner, effectively teaching you communication skills, and by creating leaders who facilitate and collaborate with multidisciplinary teams.
We prepare our residents for a variety of opportunities after residency, and are dedicated to training exceptional and compassionate family physicians who will provide high-quality comprehensive primary care and will advocate for their patients.
