Hometown: Plano, Tx

Medical School: Texas Tech University School of Medicine - Amarillo

Interests: global health, obstetrics, endoscopy

Why I chose Texas A&M Family Medicine Residency? I chose Texas A&M for residency because I have not found my niche within the family medicine world yet, so I wanted a program that would expose me to, and train me in, virtually everything, so I could have the opportunity to try it all out and then decide. I was looking for a program that would let me struggle with knowing too much and having difficulty choosing what I want my practice to include, rather than one that left me wanting for more experiences. This program was where I had my second interview, and I found myself comparing every other program I visited to this program. No other programs offered as much procedural experience built into the curriculum; no other program offered scope training. These were both so important to me because I hope to incorporate global health into my practice someday, so I want to be as versatile as possible. One of the biggest things that stuck out to me though, was the relationships not only among the residents themselves, but also among their significant others. On my interview dinner, a resident brought her husband—who she later said had actually been invited by one of the other residents at that dinner—and he and one of the other residents were talking like they were best friends. At second look, everyone showed up with the significant others, kids and pets, and they were all already familiar with each other! Everybody knew everybody else's names, and the interaction wasn't divided between residents and significant others, but all combined. Since I am married and my husband is very social, this was an extremely important requirement. It was also at the second look that I realized none of the residents looked miserable. Nobody will tell you that you won't work hard in this program, but residents were willingly showing up after shifts and even before shifts to hang out with us and meet us. I guess it just checked all the boxes for me, and I completely fell in love with it.

Hometown: Mt. Pleasant, UT

Medical School: Kansas City University – Joplin

Interests: Medical: Inpatient, Sports medicine, OBy

Why I chose Texas A&M Family Medicine Residency:

I had three main criteria when I was choosing my residency program: First and foremost: I wanted to be well trained. I am interested in inpatient care (maybe working as a hospitalist) and outpatient care. I am also considering sports medicine or being a full-spectrum, rural doc with OB. As my wife often reminds me; at some point I have to make a decision, but until then I wanted a program that would prepare me for success no matter what I choose. Texas A&M has strong in patient training, and the Advanced OB Track residents get delivery numbers nearly equivocal to those who do an OB fellowship after graduating. Additionally Dr. Gill who runs the sports medicine program works closely with the residency and finally for rural care we have everything from endoscopy, to inpatient, to OB. Secondly: The culture of a program was the next most important thing I cared about. This residency really is a family. It didn’t take long to see that the residents and attendings alike are welcoming, supportive, and genuinely enjoy spending time with each other both on and off service. Third: the food. Here we enjoy unlimited free food, a stocked soda fridge in the resident lounge, and Bryan, TX has more taco places that you can shake a churro at… I love it here!

Hometown: Katy, TX

Medical School: University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine

Interests: Inpatient/Outpatient medicine, Pediatrics, Endoscopy

Why I chose Texas A&M Family Medicine Residency:

I chose Texas A&M because the residents were encouraging, the attendings were approachable, and I wanted to end up like the graduates I saw the program producing. Geography also played a role since the program is close to home for my family, and allowed my wife to continue her degree without having to transfer schools. We work hard and long hours, but we do it as a team and learn a lot in the process. This residency will train you for any facet of Family Medicine you can imagine, while still allowing you the flexibility to opt out of things that you don’t plan to practice in the future.

The program provides its residents with opportunities to learn scopes and advanced OB, become proficient in outpatient and inpatient procedures, and work with underserved communities.

Hometown: Houston, TX

Medical School: University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine.

Interests: Inpatient/outpatient adult medicine, outpatient, pediatrics, endoscopy, obstetrics, rural medicine, and sports medicine.

Why I chose Texas A&M Family Medicine Residency:

Not knowing what the future would hold for me following residency, I researched many programs. I wanted to find a program that provided a deep understanding of a broad scope of medicine, including comprehensive training with hands-on experience in all the procedures necessary for serving patients in a rural community. Texas A&M Family Medicine Residency was at the top of my list. From the first interview with the faculty, I began to perceive their dedication to preparing residents for a family medicine practice in a rural area to treat patients for most ailments regardless of age or health condition. They were also committed to building long-term relationships with their patients and the community. The comprehensive nature of the program gave me confidence that I would also have the training to be a family medicine physician skilled in differential diagnosis in any setting. You are not limited by this program. If you want to do it, the program will let you. When I had the opportunity to meet the other residents, that sealed the deal for me. They made me feel at home right away. They conveyed a feeling of mutual respect and support -- a family that pursued the same goal – to be physicians that are a trusted source of primary care for the generations of families that they will serve. Not only were they thoughtful about their professional goals, but they were mindful of the need for a good life balance during their training. Although I attended medical school at the University of Texas, I did my undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University (WHOOP!), and I am happy to return. I love Aggieland! The environment is one of inclusion, teamwork, and that of a special hometown feel. This program is a fantastic place to train. From the moment I walked in the door, I learned every one of the health care providers and staff, no matter their position, are here to serve the community. The opportunity afforded to me at this program is very rare, and I am grateful to be a part of such a great team.
