Training Future Leaders in the Field of Family Medicine
The Family Medicine Residency at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin offers a balance of ambulatory and hospital training. In each of the three years of residency, the program offers an ambulatory rotation and elective opportunities to allow residents to shape their own professional development and educational priorities.
The residency provides full-spectrum family medicine services, including care for acute illness and injury, chronic disease management, women’s health, preventive care, ambulatory procedures, social work services, behavioral health, psychotherapy, nutrition education, telepsychiatry and pharmacy services.
Graduates of the program practice in a variety of settings, including public health and FQHC clinics, urban or rural practice, private practice, academics, urgent care and emergency care facilities and hospital-based and hospitalist practice.
Some graduates seek additional training and successfully complete fellowships in academic medicine, adolescent medicine, geriatrics, obstetrics, HIV medicine, palliative care, primary care dermatology, public health and sports medicine. Regardless of the path chosen after residency, physicians trained at Dell Med leave better prepared to engage with the broader health system.
