Graduate Medical Education (GME)

Welcome from the Director

         Dr. Leigh Hunter

Welcome from the Director

The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Methodist Health System was founded in 1949 with a vision that remains to this day – training and preparing doctors to either practice as broadly educated and outstanding internal medicine physicians or preparing them for training as subspecialists.

Residents in our program gain valuable experience working in one of the leading teaching hospitals in Dallas, Texas, Methodist Dallas Medical Center, which serves as a tertiary referral center. Because of this, our active liver and kidney transplant programs, and our large level 1 trauma program, the high acuity of illness in our patients provides an excellent and diverse patient population for resident training. Residents also spend the equivalent of 6 months training at the Dallas Veteran’s Administration Hospital instructed by UT Southwestern Medical School faculty members.

Our current faculty of 22 full-time core faculty members and 78 part-time subspecialty instructors helps ensure an attentive, well-balanced and comprehensive education in internal medicine. We believe strongly in the value of first-hand experience and responsibility giving residents the opportunity for initial patient contact and medical evaluation, formulation of a differential diagnosis, and implementation of a treatment plan.

Our program enjoys the support and commitment of the faculty and administration, a large, diverse and dependable patient base, and a new, cutting edge facility. We look forward to meeting you.
