Internal Medicine Residency Program Director Description
Texas Health Resources, a nationally recognized healthcare system and Forbes top 100 great place to work, lives a mission to improve the health and wellness of the people within its communities. Our system, one of the largest in the United States with 28 hospital locations and more than 350 access points across the greater Dallas-Fort Worth region, cares for more patients than any other health care provider in North Texas. We continually invest in new technologies, therapies, and facilities to advance care for the many patients we serve. And each year, we provide more than $800 million in charity care and community benefits.
Now, we are significantly expanding our graduate medical education (GME) programs so that the future of that mission will remain in good hands. The growth of our GME program starts this year as we begin a nationwide search for a physician leader to serve as the Program Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program. Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford (HEB) and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton are nationally ranked among the Best Hospitals in the DFW area. Additionally, the growth of residency positions will continue at Texas Heath HEB and Texas Health Denton and beyond; we plan to establish GME teaching programs at many hospitals within our health care system, creating a total of 350 residency slots overall.
Expanding our GME offerings is at the forefront of our organization’s mission to help address the shortage of physicians in the Metroplex and increase access to convenient care for North Texans. This expansion will roll out over the course of the next three years, starting with the Texas Health Fort Worth accredited general surgery program, where first-year residents will begin working in July 2021. Presently, the system has more than 40 internal medicine residents working at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
The Program Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program is responsible for the leadership, organization, operation, and general administration of the Internal Medicine Residency Program sponsored by Texas Health HEB and Texas Health Denton. The Program Director establishes the strategic direction of the program and is responsible for the standards, quality, and reputation of the program. The Program Director is expected to integrate the Internal Medicine Residency Program with physician practices and hospital clinical services in a manner that enhances value, quality, and promotes an optimal environment for professional practice and medical education. While these programs are new, Texas Health’s commitment to training and education has long been woven into our health care system’s DNA for years.

North Texas – Dallas/Fort Worth
North Texas remains a primary destination for relocating companies and professionals. It’s no wonder people are flocking to the Lone Star State. Not only is Texas the second most populated state in the U.S., it is also physically one of the largest and fastest-growing states in the country. From the scrumptious beef brisket to the booming economy, there is a lot to love about Texas. Thankfully, there’s a Texas city within the North Texas region to fit every person’s unique budget and lifestyle. The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex encompasses 10 major cities and 13 counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell, Tarrant, and Wise. This makes it the largest metropolitan area in the southern United States. In recent years, hundreds of thousands of people have flocked to this booming, cosmopolitan city.
Ranked among the Top 10 U.S. places to live with the highest pay adjusted to cost of living, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is a culturally diverse metropolitan region with affordable housing, a thriving culinary scene, world-renowned arts districts, major professional sports teams, trendy entertainment venues, and unparalleled shopping opportunities. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the most exciting regions in the country to live all year long. The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area is the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the United States, and one that grew in population by more than 19 percent from 2000 to 2007. That trend is continuing, and it means more opportunity for physician practices to prosper and grow as well.
