Welcome to our Bay Area Residency Programs Website! I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about our programs.

Corpus Christi, a Gulf Coast community of 330,000, enjoys a warm climate permitting year-round outdoor activities. Our Internal Medicine residency programs have a very strong didactic component. The residencies also places great emphasis on Osteopathic principles and manipulation, with monthly OMT lectures and hands-on experience.

We are part of the Texas OPTI which is an educational consortium committed to assuring the advancement of osteopathic postdoctoral training. Through this commitment, we enhance osteopathic graduate medical education through quality program development and advocacy on behalf of our residents.

Our website will provide you with much pertinent information about our program. However, should you have questions or need additional information, feel free to call us at 361-761-3280. We will be very happy to answer your questions, arrange a tour, or schedule an interview. Above all, I strongly urge you to speak with any of our residents about the program.
