Our Residents - 2022-2023


Our Chief Residents


We believe that our program offers the perfect blend of educational opportunities and patient interactions that will foster the development of successful physicians. The internal medicine residents at Houston Methodist Hospital receive an excellent educational experience, which consists of a combination of structured academics, daily conferences, varied clinical exposure, devoted faculty and superb instruction in evidence-based medicine, quality-improvement methods and research. The department fosters career development through the support of scholarly activity and attendance at local, regional, national and international conferences. Residents have the rare opportunity to work one-on-one with world-renowned faculty in every discipline at one of the highest-ranked hospitals in the nation. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team that consists of medical students, residents and fellows and will be guided, tutored and mentored by leaders in different subspecialties. While residency is rigorous, we foster a good work/life balance to promote resident wellness, prevent burnout and create the opportunity for social events and long-lasting friendships.

Thank you for considering our program.

Henry is thrilled to be serving as this year's PGY-4 chief! From Houston originally, he left home for undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis, then attended medical school at the University of Virginia.  He was excited for the opportunity to train at his top choice for residency at HMH and to take advantage of the unparalleled opportunities offered there.  Looking forward, Henry plans to continue to teach and learn as an academic hospitalist.  In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, reading fantasy novels, and finding new restaurants to try with his fiancé.


Ryan was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX and moved to Houston for undergraduate education where he attended the University of Houston.  He returned to Fort Worth to complete his medical school training at University of North Texas-TCOM.  To continue this flip flopping trend, Ryan returned to Houston for residency.  He has loved his time at Houston Methodist and has met amazing people here.  Outside of the hospital, Ryan enjoys watching and playing sports (soccer, volleyball, basketball, football) and exploring the Houston food scene!  He is currently interested in pursuing a fellowship in cardiology.

Neha is a Dallas native and comes from our very own affiliated Texas A&M College of Medicine.  She is happy to call Houston Methodist her home and is excited to serve as a PGY-3 chief.  Neha plans to specialize in Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine and can be found spending most of her free time in the ICU.  Her remaining time is put towards painting, playing soccer, sand volleyball and searching for the best eats in Houston!
