Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is a typical call day like?

    There are five ward teams, each consisting of an upper level PGY-2 or PGY-3 resident, 1 or 2 interns, and 1 or 2 medical students. Each team is on-call every fifth day. The on-call team starts their day at 8 a.m. and accepts new admissions until 8 a.m. the following morning. The interns stay overnight and are required to complete their work by 12 p.m. the next day. The on-call team is also responsible to cross cover all patients on the teaching service. Interns admit up to 5 patients per call day and carry a maximum census of 10 patients.

  • Do the residents see a variety of patients?

    The Teaching Service is the select group of patients in the hospital that are being cared for by the residents. Internists and subspecialists who have admitting privileges admit their most interesting patients to the Teaching Service. Patients are admitted from: the emergency room, the residents' clinic, general internal medicine practices, and subspecialty practices, ensuring a diverse patient population.

  • Where have the categorical residents gone after they have graduated?

    Approximately half of the graduating residents enter private practice as hospitalists or outpatient general internists, and the other half enter fellowships. Graduates from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas have obtained prestigious fellowships across the country in a variety of subspecialties, including cardiology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, nephrology, pulmonology, infectious disease, endocrinology and rheumatology. Graduating residents who wish to stay at Texas Health Dallas, or any of the Texas Health Resources hospitals, have several career opportunities available to them in the inpatient and outpatient arenas.

  • Do the residents have enough autonomy in taking care of their patients

    Texas Health Dallas has always been a teaching hospital, and residents play an integral role in patient care. In contrast to the traditional, university-based residency programs, residents work with several different attending physicians during their internal medicine ward months. Residents actively care for patients, with oversight from attending physicians. This approach provides residents with autonomy without jeopardizing the quality of patient care. During the subspecialty electives/selectives, residents work one-on-one with the attending physician and are permitted to manage patients to the extent to which they are comfortable.

  • What is the benefits package for the residents?

    Few hospitals offer a benefits package as competitive as the one offered by Texas Health Dallas. Medical and dental insurance are provided to the resident at no cost. Vision insurance is also available at a low monthly rate. The residents' salaries are higher than average, and all of the residents receive 25 weekdays of paid time off. Subscriptions to some of the major medical references such as The New England Journal of Medicineare provided without cost. UpToDate is available from any computer on campus or home computer or mobile device via the hospital's intranet. The Department of Internal Medicine sponsors all of the graduating categorical residents to attend a board review course. See Stipends and Benefits for more details.
