The DeTar Family Medicine Residency Program gives medical school graduates broad, hands-on experience to prepare for the next step in their professional journeys.


We’re excited you’re considering a career in Family Medicine. With the looming, revolutionary change in physician reimbursement, from "fee for service" to "pay for performance," Family Medicine is perfectly positioned to lead healthcare in the United States for the foreseeable future. Preventive, continuous, coordinated care, with patient-centered, personalized medicine that integrates spiritual, family and community resources—these key factors that policy makers now recognize improve outcomes, in fact always have been at the heart of Family Medicine. Texas A&M University faculty have consciously designed our new residency within the DeTar Healthcare System to address these rapidly evolving trends. Our program aims to use state-of-the-art conceptual and technological advances to promote the traditional values of Family Medicine.
