Admissions and Applications

Effective March 18, all clinical rotations to Houston Methodist hospitals and associated facilities will be suspended until further notice. Although we are unable to provide an exact date of when we will reinstitute our clinical rotations across the system hospitals, we are tentatively expecting this suspension to occur until at least April 30, 2020. As you are all aware, this is a very fluid situation and one we take very seriously. At no time is it our intent to put any of our students, trainees, staff, physicians or most importantly our patients at risk. We will continue to update this page with information, as it becomes available. Additional information about COVID-19 has been provided by Houston Methodist HERE.

We are honored that you have chosen Houston Methodist to continue your education training and look forward to working with you throughout the credentialing process.

For more than 80 years, our name has been synonymous with quality care and excellence. If selected, you will engage with America's best physicians, nurses and professionals. Houston Methodist is a place where your compassion gives comfort, your talent drives innovation and your care makes a difference.

Prior to beginning your training at Houston Methodist, there is an onboarding process that must be followed and completed. The information you will find below will help to ensure that all required documents, background screens and program-specific requirements have been completed at least four weeks prior to your arrival thus reducing the processing time on the first day of your scheduled orientation.
YOU MAY NOT BEGIN YOUR TRAINING UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED OF APPROVAL AND ISSUED A CURRENT BADGE. This application is not considered complete until all information and documentation is received and verified.
