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.
