Medical Students

Medical Student Rotations

The tradition of training medical students at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd began in 2011, with the first group of six dedicated third-year students from Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine at the University of North Texas Health Science Center (TCOM). Annually, these students obtain their clinical, hands-on training in East Texas among a multidisciplinary group of nursing staff, internal medicine residents, attending physicians, pharmacists and ancillary staff, while living in Longview for their third year of medical school, and in some cases, their fourth and final year. Our Internal Medicine Residency Program has a tremendous recruiting history with our TCOM grads, many who have served as Chief Resident in their final year of residency training at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd.

We look forward to the same rewarding relationship with Texas A&M School of Medicine and Sam Houston State University College of Osteopathic Medicine as we begin to welcome third and fourth-year medical students who will spend time training in the hospital and resident clinic as part of Internal Medicine core clerkship and/or elective rotations (audition rotations for MSIV) with the residency program. As our medical education partners in Texas continue to grow, our initial goal to train and retain the next generation of physicians is being met with successful collaboration.

If you are a US medical student and you are interested in our Internal Medicine Residency Program, you may contact for information. We do not provide any housing accommodations and you will be required to submit an approval and letter of good standing from your school.
