Family Medicine

Since 1974, the Family Medicine Residency Program has challenged students to become the best family physicians possible within a supportive, collaborative, family atmosphere. Our graduates have gone on to become local leaders, policy makers, educators, academics, and most importantly, qualified community physicians. Dr. David Wright has been a program leader for the past 24 years. As former Texas Family Physician of the year with numerous awards and professional honors, he epitomizes the commitment our entire faculty shares: providing the highest levels of education and patient care.

Welcome from the Program Director

Our residency program was established in 1974 and has trained over 250 family physicians. We have established a tradition of providing excellence in clinical training for Family Medicine residents and medical students.

In Memory of Dr. Mathis Blackstock

He leaves a tremendous legacy in the many wonderful physicians whom he mentored in their evolution as physicians and leaders in their community and also in every patient who receives services at the clinic that bears his name.
