Message From the Program Director

Thank you for considering the Houston Healthcare Family Medicine Residency!

As a medical student or resident viewing our website, I congratulate you on having decided to pursue a career in family medicine. As knowledge and technology continue to change the science of medicine, the compassion and art required for patient care continue to play an integral role as well. It is with this in mind that the family medicine residency program at Houston Healthcare emphasizes the development of excellent family physicians skilled in patient care who possess the medical knowledge and technical savvy needed to practice in today’s evolving healthcare system. We strive to provide our residents with excellent opportunities to grow, both professionally and personally, through an emphasis on hands-on learning, evidence-based medicine, and utilization of your osteopathic manipulative medicine and other procedural skills.

As a family medicine resident in the Houston Healthcare System, you will have inpatient educational experiences at Houston Medical Center, establish your longitudinal continuity patient care at Pavilion Family Medicine Center, and serve the patient population of Houston County, Georgia, which is about 150,000 strong. Electronic health care records are utilized throughout the healthcare system.

Please feel free to contact me or our Program Coordinator, Dawn Carpenter, for further information or, better yet, come for a student rotation to see for yourself.

La Toya Jackson, MS, DO
