Preventive Medicine Residency

The Preventive Medicine Residency program was created in 1957 when the Texas public health agency recognized the need for public health physicians in Texas. Over the last 60+ years, the residency program has benefited the state health agency by producing board certified Preventive Medicine physicians trained specifically in Texas public health law, demography and epidemiology programs. Graduates of the program have greatly benefited Texas and hold key positions at local, regional and state levels.
