How to apply
The Medical City Arlington Emergency Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.
The new three-year Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Medical City Arlington is an engaging and dynamic evidence-based program designed to provide the trainee with high-quality instruction and experience in emergency medicine. Our goal is to teach well-rounded physicians to provide outstanding emergency medical care in an efficient and compassionate manner and prepare them for lifelong careers in emergency medicine.
We believe the best way to learn medicine is one patient at a time, treating the whole patient, not the symptom.
The program is under the HCA Medical City Healthcare UNT-TCU Graduate Medical Education Consortium which is affiliated with the University of North Texas Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and UNTHSC-TCU School of Medicine.
Residents experience an increasing degree of patient care responsibilities in a high volume, demographically diverse emergency department in several of our medical centers under the consortium. We have a very close relationship with our other GME programs, and our experienced faculty model the highest standards of patient care and provide hands-on instruction and clinical experiences in all areas of emergency medicine. They are eager to share their knowledge and experience with you.
This residency also offers a unique opportunity to broaden individual interests through exposure to a variety of emergency medicine-related activities, including field operations, international medicine, EM administration, EM ultrasound, pediatric EM, and various research opportunities.

Frequently asked questions
Q. Does your program provide study materials and Q banks?
A. An extensive list of textbooks and articles are available through the on line library. All or esidents are given subscriptions to Rosh Review and Peer. Interns to U World.
Q. Why should I choose Medical City Arlington to train?
A. There are several great emergency medicine training programs in the Dallas Fort Worth Arlington metroplex and many more across the country, but relatively few that can provide an environment that allows the resident to be the highest priority learner at ALL times. Unless on a resident teaching shift (allowing residents the opportunity to teach and take on supervisory roles is an ACGME requirement), our schedules are designed to allow the resident on shift to be able to see EVERY critically ill/injured and interesting patient that they can handle. And because attending physicians are assigned one to one with residents, you can be comfortable that there will be the necessary supervision available. There is no built in service time assignments in fast tracks, observation units and low acuity pods and there is no time waiting in line behind your co residents for good cases (EM residents or other services).
