Curriculum of the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford Internal Medicine Residency is a well-balanced mix of inpatient and outpatient experiences in general internal medicine and subspecialties. This enables the resident to become an excellent primary care physician and provides a solid internal medicine foundation for the resident entering a subspecialty fellowship. Residents rotate on the campuses of both Texas Health HEB and Texas Health Denton for equal academic experience.

This series also includes lectures on neurology, psychiatry, orthopedics, ophthalmology, pain management, emergency medicine, dermatology, geriatrics, sleep medicine and a variety of other topics.

Clinical Pathological Conference (CPC)

CPC is held once a month. A challenging case is presented by a resident and discussed by a faculty member after relevant imaging is presented by a radiologist. A pathologist then reviews pathology and the final diagnosis.
