|Message from the Program Director
Welcome to the Methodist Hospital (Houston) Family Medicine Residency Program website. Whether you are an applicant interested in residency
training, a student looking for a rotation or someone who just stumbled across the site on accident, I hope that you are able to learn a little more
The residency program has been in existence for over 15 years and has been associated with both the Denver Harbor Clinic and the Methodist
Hospital since 2005. These collaborations allow us to provide medical care and education across the full spectrum of medicine and society. The
Denver Harbor Clinic is a federally qualified health center that provides primary care to an urban, underserved population in the heart of Houston.
The Methodist Hospital is a tertiary care facility located in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center that is truly at the forefront of medical care,
education and research in the United States. Together, this combination allows our trainees to have an educational experience that is unique in
opportunity and exposure.
The true strength of a residency – of any residency – is the people. The committed, enthusiastic faculty, the diverse and hard-working residents and
the dedicated staff and leadership of both the sponsoring institution and FQHC are the backbone of the program. We are small, but it works well for
us. When you are here, you are part of the family.
Graduates of the program are practicing in numerous and varied practice settings around Texas and across the country. We have successfully placed
numerous graduates in fellowship programs in geriatrics, sports medicine, preventative medicine, and bariatrics. Upon graduation, several of our
residents have opened up solo private practices, joined group private practices, joined faculty, joined hospitalist practices, ER physician practices,
etc. We, as a program, are dedicated to helping our residents achieve their own personal goals, however they define them.
Please take some time and look through the website, learn a little more about us and our missions. Also, stop by our Facebook site, the Methodist
Hospital Graduate Medical Education site, and the HCHC clinic site to find out more. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a question or need
any information that hasn’t been provided.
Thanks for taking a few minutes with us.
