Family Medicine Residency program curriculum

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. We are fortunate to have several experienced physicians with a multitude of interests in our faculty group. Our residents benefit from being an unopposed medical residency at the hospital.

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 health center with a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) status.

Family Medicine rotation schedule

Our ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) accredited three-year program is offered at HCA Houston Healthcare West and boasts a relationship with Hope Clinic, our outpatient continuity clinic, and an academic relationship with the University of Houston, College of Medicine.
