Global Health Track

Our optional Global Health Track prepares and mentors residents with the specialized training needed for global health work.

We supplement the broad-based training offered by our program with:

  1. Didactic training modules covering public health, cross-cultural competency, diseases of poverty, and more
  2. Global health lectures
  3. National conferences on global health or medical missions
  4. One, or preferably two, one-month international medical elective trips

An added bonus of the track:

Residents who complete the requirements receive funding to offset the expenses of their global health elective(s). Check out our global footprint. Our graduates and residents have served in over 41 different countries.

High / Low-OB Track

Want more OB experience? Or a bit less? We offer the option to tailor your OB volume beginning your PGY-2 year.

To cover our busy OB service, we staff four OB residents every block. The high/low option allows a PGY-3 to swap an elective for an extra four-week block of intensive inpatient OB, while a corresponding PGY-2 swaps an OB block for an elective tailored to their future practice plans.

Normal and high-track residents routinely obtain the numbers below. Higher numbers, as well as C-section competence, are available depending on resident initiative. The number of C-sections performed during residency has recently ranged from 60 to 170 sections.

We are certified through the American Board of Physician Specialties as an OB Fellowship-Equivalent Training Program. This allows your training to serve as the prerequisite experience to obtain the Family Medicine Obstetrics Board Certification through the ABPS.

Spanish Track

Geared for incoming residents with an intermediate or higher level of Spanish proficiency, the Spanish Track is led by two bilingual family physicians and a Spanish professor from Baylor University.

Incoming residents qualify for the track if they score >50% on the ALTA CCLA Spanish test.
