The heat is on, so that means it’s time to welcome our new trainees to Houston! McGovern Medical School has one of the largest graduate medical education programs, and this year we are adding 280 new residents and 119 new fellows to our ranks. The new trainees started making their way to Houston at the end of June, and the migration will continue through the middle of August.
I am thrilled to announce two new programs this year – Orthopedic Oncology and Interventional Heart Failure have their first fellows starting this summer.
Thank you to our institutional training leadership, Dr. Patricia Butler, vice dean for Educational Programs; Dr. Margaret Uthman, associate dean for Graduate Medical Education; Dr. Pamela Promecene-Cook, assistant dean for Graduate Medical Education; Dr. Samuel Luber, assistant dean for Graduate Medical Education; Dr. Allison Ownby, assistant dean for Faculty and Educational Development; and Jill Herrin, director, of our GME office—as well as to the leaders of each specific program. The GME office will be hosting four orientation programs throughout the summer months to accommodate all of our talented newcomers.
A big thank you to the large group of educators and coordinators who make this a seamless and welcoming process for our new recruits.
Welcome to all of our new residents and fellows. We are so glad you are part of McGovern Medical School.
