OB/GYN 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 Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program. Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth is a nationally ranked Top 10 Best Hospital in the DFW area. Additionally, the growth of residency positions will continue at Texas Heath Fort Worth 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.
