Approximately 33% of the required rotations are at LBJ. This well-equipped public hospital was opened in July 1989, and it is here that our residents gain invaluable experience while serving a very needy community. All five HCHD clinics in our Urban Program in the Department admit their patients to the Family Medicine Service at LBJ.
