Welcome to the DHR Health Family Medicine Residency Program. Founded in 2023, our newly established program provides comprehensive, high-quality, family-centered care to all patients, every encounter. Our clinical and educational mission is to provide compassionate, team-based healthcare in a culturally attuned, cost-effective manner. Uniquely located at the US-Mexico border of South Texas, we service a diverse community and patient population, rich in culture and socioeconomic backgrounds, meeting the educational mission and needs of our program.
At DHR Heath, our mission is to improve the well-being of those we serve with a commitment to excellence. Our health system reaches across two counties, with the Edinburg campus as the epicenter with a level-1 trauma center and level-4 women’s hospital. Our training sites focus on caring for underserved border populations, but our residents are prepared to be successful in a variety of practice settings. Through the incorporation of team-based, integrated healthcare and education, our residents rotate through an array of inpatient and outpatient experiences at DHR Health. We also collaborate with non-profit and community-based organizations to provide a robust clinical and service environment, teaching residents to provide exceptional quality care to all patients. Our diverse faculty are committed to modeling the foundational elements of family medicine: patient-centered, community-oriented and evidence-based primary care.
Resident wellness and success are at the heart of our program. We offer a robust family medicine curriculum that is uniquely tailored to meet the educational plans and career objectives for each resident. Career paths include academic medicine, global health, hospital medicine, obesity medicine, sports medicine, integrated behavioral health, geriatrics, palliative care and more. We host regular wellness didactics and social events to ensure dedicated time and space for the wellbeing of our residents and faculty.
Thank you again for your interest. I invite you to read more about our program below.
