Choosing a program for resident training is a crucial and exciting step in your future career as a physician. At Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, we are dedicated to providing the learning opportunities you need for a bright, successful future as a surgeon.
The Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth TCU School of Medicine General Surgery Residency Program is a five-year, ACGME-accredited program with three positions per year. Residents will be offered an incredible opportunity to train in a program offering a diverse educational platform in a friendly and respectful environment.
We are excited to educate qualified, highly motivated individuals who desire to become surgical leaders and to accomplish this, we are committed to providing our residents with a well-rounded, comprehensive training experience rooted in our culture of collegiality and ingenuity. Here, residents can assume critical decision-making skills and gain operative experience by working side by side with our faculty. The size of our program offers residents the progressive autonomy and opportunity for close and collegial relationships with faculty while gaining knowledge to facilitate continual learning in the evolving field that is surgery.
Our approach to teaching and learning is personal. A structured, three-hour weekly didactic curriculum includes resident educational conferences to maximize learning opportunities for knowledge will serve as the foundation for sound surgical judgment and evidence-based solutions. All residents attend outpatient clinics with our faculty, gaining experience in the initial diagnosis and postoperative care of the surgical patient and to maximize continuity whenever possible. To focus on residents’ health and wellness, the last Friday of every month has a protected four-hour time block. In addition, we also foster professional growth through our individualized mentoring from faculty.
With an unwavering commitment to the Mission of Texas Health – to enhance the health of the people we serve – our program is dedicated to training the residents of today in delivering quality, compassionate surgical care that makes a difference for patients and their families today and into the future.
Being a resident here is both challenging and remarkably rewarding. We invite you to learn all you can about our program here.
We wish you all the best of luck in your surgical pursuits!
