Healthcare Highways Partner Medical City And UNTHSC Is Adding 500 Residencies

admin | May 14, 2018

Part of the Healthcare Highways network of quality physicians, Medical City Dallas is doing its part to develop future leaders in medicine. We’re pleased to have partners that are committed to our mission of challenging healthcare to do better. Medical City Healthcare, in a joint project with UNT Senior Health Science Center, will create 500 residency positions to address, among other things, a shortage of physicians in Texas, especially in rural areas.

As reported by D CEO HEALTHCARE:

“As we continue to add more medical schools, there’s a need to grow more residency training slots in Texas,” says Dr. Michael Williams, UNTHSC’s president.

The 500 resident positions will be developed over the next seven years across Medical City’s 14 Dallas-Fort Worth hospitals. In addition to the 230 med students UNTHSC takes at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine each enrollment period, the school expects to take its first 60-person class at the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine in summer 2019.”

This is an amazing venture that will bring talent and excellent care to our Texas members, as D CEO HEALTHCARE reports:

“Not only will this investment result in significant additional physician capacity, but we know that when we convert facilities into teaching hospitals patient care gets even better,” Medical City Healthcare President Erol Akdamar says in a statement.”
