A Texas A&M College of Medicine Residency Program
A Welcome from the Director of Medical Education
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Driscoll Children's Hospital Residency Program.
Driscoll is a freestanding Children's Hospital positioned to serve a large area of South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. The hospital is in Corpus Christi, overlooking the bay. Here residents have the opportunity to learn from a patient population of substantial volume with an abundance of diverse and unusual pathology. This, combined with our strong focus on academics and evidence based medicine, are some of the attractions that bring medical students from four schools to train with us. The greatest strength of the hospital and of the residency program lies in the warm and inviting culture that surrounds our residents and medical students. We are fortunate to have friendly and dedicated hospital staff and teaching faculty in general pediatrics and all major subspecialties who participate in our resident’s educational experiences.
We are also privileged to have a diverse, multicultural team of residents from around the world who support each other just as we support them. I am proud to lead this team and am amazed every day at the dedication and hard work they put into the work they do. Our program makes every effort to utilize the capabilities of each resident, both in clinical work as well as program administration and hospital partnership. We are team oriented in our residency advocacy, quality improvement, and research efforts at Driscoll. We are also team driven in improving our program to meet the wants and needs of our residents and provide the best educational experience we can.
We have a structured curriculum with over 10 hours weekly of protected didactic time with emphasis on a strong foundation in general pediatrics. We work to ensure our residents are prepared for pediatric boards and also have the right exposure to pursue fellowship in subspecialties if desired. Whether it is in learning through didactics or hands-on patient care, our mission is to advocate for our residents’ growth and development as pediatricians.
We know pediatric residency is challenging as there is much to learn and incredible growth that occurs in three years. Our team here feels that the experience, while challenging, should be enjoyable. We work together to create a culture where this is possible.
Please take time to look over our resident testimonials to read first-hand about the experience one would expect at this remarkable place. View some of the research our residents have contributed to our profession and browse through the fellowships our residents have successfully matched into that extends the mission of Driscoll across the country. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information. I am always happy to share the experience and education we have here.
