Preventive Medicine Residency

DSHS recognized a shortage of Preventive Medicine specialists nationwide. The agency also recognized the benefits of being able to hire board certified Preventive Medicine physicians trained specifically in Texas public health law, demography, and epidemiology problems. Thus, DSHS established its residency program in 1959. The graduates of the program have greatly benefited Texas and held key positions at local, regional, state, and national levels.
