Your experience here at HMH: Urology residency at Houston Methodist Hospital was a fantastic experience.

Christopher Tallman, MD
Graduation Year:
Current Institution:  Urology medical Specialists, Delray Beach, FL
Fellowship or Private Practice: Private Practice
Future Plans: To be Determined
Your experience here at HMH: Training as a resident in Urology at Houston Methodist Hospital was truly a remarkable experience for me.  As a foreign medical graduate, I would have been happy to have a urology residency at any program, but I could not have imagined have the opportunity to train with such a prestigious group of faculty. What is truly unique about the program at Methodist, is not only the exceptional academic experience of the facility, but their unique and personal traits that make them great educators. While my focus starting residency was on robotics and prostate cancer, I was able to diversify and excel within multiple areas I was not previously as interested in. This has proven to be invaluable as a new private practice physician in a busy community setting.  Now, as a new urologist in the region, I am able to offer more advanced surgical treatment options, minimally invasive approaches including robotics as well as cutting edge therapies to a larger community that was typically sent to a tertiary referral center. My training at Houston Methodist was remarkable on every front, and is the greatest thing that I miss now having left the Houston area.  The lifelong mentorship from the faculty has already been recognized as I grow as a clinician, despite not being in the academic role directly. 


Kenan Celtik, MD
Graduation Year: 2022
Current Institution: Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY
Fellowship or Private Practice: Reconstructive Urology Fellowship
Future Plans: To be Determined
Your experience here at HMH: My training at Methodist exposed me to every subspecialty and gave me the surgical and clinical skillset needed to practice independently. Nonetheless, my mentors helped me build my academic resume and land a top fellowship.
Alexander Mackay, MD
Graduation Year:
Current Institution: Urology Partners of North Texas in DFW
Fellowship or Private Practice: Private Practice
Future Plans: Establish a general urology practice in the DFW area
Your experience here at HMH: I had an excellent experience in residency. The culture and work environment from top to bottom, including the residents, attendings, and entire hospital staff make the day-to-day much more enjoyable. The surgical training was high in both volume and complexity, as well as covering all the different aspects of urology that made me feel confident in my abilities to go out into private practice without doing a fellowship.
