Mark Feldman, M.D., M.A.C.P., longtime chair of the Department of Internal Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and director of the hospital’s Internal Medicine Residency Program, is retiring after 20 years on the hospital’s medical staff. Dr. Feldman is renowned among both residents and longtime physicians, in addition to receiving academic accolades and a reputation as one of the nation’s leading gastroenterologists.
“His leadership and medical expertise have touched every corner of this institution,” said Jim Parobek, hospital president. “There’s no way to adequately describe the role he’s played here. We’re happy for him, but he will be sorely missed.”
We are honoring Dr. Feldman for his years of service with the Mark Feldman, M.D., Internal Medicine Fund. Donations will support the medical education and teaching programs of the Internal Medicine Residency Program including research in this area at Texas Health Dallas.
Since the late 1970s, the faculty members and staff have worked together to develop a rich and diverse internal medicine residency curriculum. The curriculum provides a broad spectrum of learning yet allows the resident to build upon this fundamental core of knowledge and pursue either a subspecialty track, a primary care track, or a hospitalist track. The primary goal of the residency program is to develop residents into highly skilled, thoughtful, competent and compassionate physicians. Texas Health Dallas’ large and diverse patient population provides the residents with ample exposure to both common and rare diseases.
“It’s sad to see Dr. Feldman leave, but his legacy will live on through the next generation of physicians he’s helped train and through his commitment to excellence and leadership of numerous services here,” said Aurora Estevez, M.D., chief medical officer at Texas Health Dallas.
