Letter from the Chairman
Mark Feldman, M.D., MACP
Dear Prospective Applicant:
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, located in North
Dallas, is a teaching hospital committed to improving the health
of the people in the communities we serve. This is also the
mission of the Department of Internal Medicine at Texas Health
Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. To that end, we have talented and dedicated faculty develop in our residents the
skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to provide excellent care.
This care includes health promotion, disease prevention, and
management of acute and chronic diseases, including intensive
care of critically ill patients.
Since the late 1970s, the faculty members and the house staff
have worked together to develop a rich and diverse 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 curriculum allows the resident to develop
the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to maintain a
systematic and continuous process of self-learning, including
critical analysis of the medical literature and medical
statistics. The curriculum also provides the resident with
exposure to other areas of medicine including neurology,
dermatology, emergency medicine, and allergy and immunology.
Medical students rotating from The University of Texas
Southwestern Medical School also give the residents ample
opportunity to teach.
The Department of Medicine has well over 100 full-time and
part-time faculty. The faculty serve as admitting and teaching
attendings as well as consultants on the subspecialty services.
The faculty guide the residents as they care for patients yet
know the importance of giving them autonomy. There is excellent
rapport between our faculty and the housestaff. The Department of
Internal Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas
provides all categorical internal medicine residents exposure to
clinical research. I hope you will be able to visit our campus so
that you may better appreciate our program, see our beautiful facilities,
and meet the
faculty and house staff. I look forward to hearing from you.
