I wanted to train in the Texas Medical Center. It is important for me to continue my mission to provide compassionate care and hope to the underserved population in a large metropolitan area.

Commitment to Diversity
Our residency program is committed to the recruitment and retention of trainees who identify as underrepresented minorities in medicine based on race, ethnicity, socioecononmic status, religious beliefs, gender identity, or sexual orientation. This is in alignment with the mission of our institution to “provide the highest quality education and training of future physicians for the state of Texas, in harmony with the state’s diverse population.”
Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the US and our patient population reflects a rich mix of cultures, ethnicities and nationalities. Therefore, we aim to train a diverse physician workforce dedicated to efforts to reduce and eliminate healthcare disparities.
