Houston Methodist’s philosophy when it comes to our internal medicine residency is being able to balance education and service to optimize your learning experience. We are especially proud of the many unique features, such as our exemplary faculty, the hands-on training and the opportunities to further your professional vision every day, which make our program stand out among all the others.



Program Overview

The optimally-sized Internal Medicine Residency program, with 51 categorical residents, thrives in our world-renowned Houston Methodist facilities located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, where education and service responsibilities are indeed balanced. Throughout the period of training, our residents are exposed to the full gamut of medical patients during times spent on the University Teaching Service (UTS), subspecialty rotations, intensive care units (ICUs) and ambulatory clinics. The program’s size allows for significant interaction with nationally-recognized faculty with excellence in teaching and research.  Houston Methodist provides a wide array of research opportunities in a state-of the-art facility. Simulation training at the Houston Methodist Institute of Technology, Innovation & Education (MITIESM) lab is also available to enhance your educational experience. Excellence in teaching, research and patient care are just some of the many exceptional features of our Internal Medicine Residency program.

Excellence in Teaching
Internal medicine residents at Houston Methodist are privileged to work one-on-one with leaders in their respective fields during numerous rotations, many of whom have been teaching residents and students for more than 20 years. We also have an Academic Hospitalist Team whose main focus is on teaching inpatient medicine, while attending on the University Teaching Service. The availability of these hospitalists really makes a difference when teaching procedures, leading family discussions and improving the length of patient stays. Whether our residents go on to become subspecialists, hospitalists or primary care physicians, Houston Methodist is committed to providing the education needed to graduate as top-notch internists.
