Houston Methodist Hospital has a long tradition of training physicians in various medical and surgical specialties. In April 2005, Houston Methodist Hospital received accreditation for the first sponsored program in pathology. The development of the graduate medical education (GME) programs have been of great success, now with 36 programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and 6 Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC)-sponsored (non-ACGME) programs.
Houston Methodist provides a unique environment for postdoctoral researchers on career paths to leadership in translational medicine. Our postdoctoral researchers work with multidisciplinary teams to identify clinically relevant challenges, and develop research projects that translate into technological advances in the clinic.
