A strong residency program is key for future doctors to gain hands-on experience. Our diverse city provides access to numerous and unique patients representing a cross-section of Texas and the United States. Along with educating the future of primary care providers, our goal is to address the shortage of medical doctors in Texas by providing means for graduates to practice in the state.
The University of Houston College of Medicine and HCA Houston Healthcare offer residency programs in family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology and surgery. This agreement provides the opportunity for future MDs to complete their residency in nationally recognized hospitals and surgical settings, with placements in Houston and the surrounding areas.
HCA Houston Healthcare welcomed inaugural residents into the graduate medical education program with specializations in family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine and surgery at the Kingwood and West hospital locations. Resident training hospitals and clinical opportunities will expand through the partnership, over time.
