Message from the Program Director
Dear Prospective Applicant:
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, located in North Dallas, is an academic teaching hospital committed to improving the health of the people in the communities we serve. Our mission is to provide the highest quality training by practicing evidence-based medical care in a diverse community setting while instilling the values of pursuit of knowledge, collegiality, humanism, research, and medical stewardship in our medical residents and faculty while supporting each individual's passions and goals.
Since the late 1970s, the faculty members and the house staff have worked together to develop a rich and diverse curriculum. The curriculum provides a broad spectrum of learning, yet allows the resident to build upon this fundamental core of knowledge and pursue either a subspecialty track, a primary care track, or a hospitalist track. The curriculum allows the resident to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to maintain a systematic and continuous process of self-learning, including critical analysis of the medical literature and medical statistics. The curriculum also provides the resident with exposure to other areas of medicine including neurology, dermatology, emergency medicine, and allergy and immunology. Medical students rotating from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School also give the residents ample opportunity to teach.
The Department of Medicine has well over 100 full-time and part-time faculty. The faculty serve as admitting and teaching attendings as well as consultants on the subspecialty services. The faculty guide the residents as they care for patients yet know the importance of giving them autonomy. There is excellent rapport between our faculty and the housestaff. The Department of Internal Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas provides all categorical internal medicine residents exposure to clinical research. I hope you will be able to visit our campus so that you may better appreciate our program, see our beautiful facilities, and meet the faculty and house staff. I look forward to hearing from you.
