Texas Licensure

Texas Medical Licensure

All Methodist residents, subspecialty residents, and rotating residents from other ACGME programs must have a Texas State Board of Medical Examiners medical license or physician-in-training permit before assuming clinical duties at The Methodist Hospital.

Appointment to the position of resident at The Methodist Hospital is contingent upon:

  • Issuance of an active physician-in-training permit or medical license from the TMB prior to assuming duties at Methodist
  • Satisfactory results of substance abuse testing and Security Background Check, which are conditions of employment for all Methodist employees
  • Successful completion of all requirements specified by the particular Program offering the Resident appointment

Residents from other ACGME-accredited training programs who select an elective Clinical Rotation at The Methodist Hospital must also obtain a physician-in-training permit or medical license from the TMB prior to beginning their clinical rotations.

Residents must now complete an online Physician-in-Training TMB form. Your Program Director will provide you with a TMB personal ID number and the appropriate ACGME or TMB Program Identification number necessary to complete the online forms. You can reach the online application and other information about physician-in-training applications by clicking here.

There are separate links for initial applications, institution change applications and rotator applications.
