Nationally Recognized Residency Program

Program Overview

Our Residency Program

Conroe Family Medicine Residency Program is an unopposed, community-based residency with a long history of preparing highly trained physicians who practice in a variety of settings. We are proud to call Lone Star Family Health Center home and we are one of the original 11 Teaching Health Centers in Graduate Medical Education. Our resident physicians receive full-spectrum “hands-on” training in a congenial and collegial environment and learn to deliver cost-effective treatment while integrating the most advanced concepts in the medical field.

We are proud to offer three optional unique training tracks in our residency program in addition to our more traditional curriculum.

Our “Medically Underserved” track recognizes the need for competent physicians who are able to offer comprehensive, compassionate and culturally sensitive care to the diverse and growing population of patients in underserved settings in the context of health and healthcare delivery in these communities.

Our “Obstetrical” track participants gain advanced experience in low- and high-risk management of obstetrical patients and increased competence in operative obstetrical procedures.

Our “Hospitalist” track for family medicine provides education, training and exposure to inpatient medicine care that surpass the required core education and training during residency. Those residents who are considering additional exposure and training in hospitalist medicine can pursue it.

Our Beginning

The Conroe Family Medicine Residency Program was originally founded in 1979 as the “Montgomery County Medical Education Foundation” by a team of physicians who set out to establish a Family Medicine residency program in the local area. Our first three residents graduated in June 1985.

We partnered with the University of Texas Health Science Center from 1983-94, and with the University of Texas Medical Branch from 1994-2000. Today, our residency program is sponsored by Conroe Medical Education Foundation and is fully accredited with commendation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

The commitment of our faculty and resident physicians combined with our high quality training resulted in our graduates achieving a 100% pass rate on Board Certification Examination offered by the American Board of Family Medicine.

An Inspirational Outlook

The Conroe Family Medicine Residency Program is excited about the future in our mission to produce the best and most experienced family physicians. We are pleased to have support from HCA Houston Healthcare – Conroe, Conroe Medical Education Foundation and Lone Star Family Health Center, as well as from our local community. This independent sponsorship enables greater operational control, both educationally and financially and ultimately allows us to continue to grow and evolve the program – ensuring our residents obtain top tier & competitive training. As a Teaching Health Center in Graduate Medical Education aligned with a Federally Qualified Health Center, we offer a wide range of additional services which are integrated into our residency training.

Testimonials From Our Graduates

After working for more than one year after residency, I can confidently say that the Conroe Family Medicine Residency has more than prepared me for the real world. I would say that the education I received at this unopposed program was truly exceptional and would have prepared me for whatever I wanted to practice as a family physician. The faculty physicians and staff there are all wonderful people who really cared about our education. I am grateful to have graduated from this program.

Testimonials From Our Graduates

Lone Star was my first choice for residency because of its unopposed status and small group of residents and faculty, which made me feel that I would have ample opportunities and first-rate
training there. After finishing my training, I know it was the best choice for me. Though the
program was rigorous and challenging, I feel more prepared than I ever have for my career in
medicine. Going into the workforce, I felt confident that I was qualified for any job I was applying to, which was a nice change from the Imposter Syndrome I sometimes felt. Lastly, the location is ideal: it’s close to Houston with a variety of amenities, but not so much that you feel any of the city traffic!

It is excellent training for Family Doctors. In my current practice I round on patients in nursing homes and hospitals and I would not be able to if it was not for the excellent training I received at Conroe. Great people to work with as well.

Testimonials From Our Graduates

It wasn’t until I had been practicing for several months that I really realized how well I was trained at Conroe. At the beginning I kept waiting for the patient that would exceed the limits of my abilities and they just never came. My medical career thus far has been extremely rewarding thanks to my time at Conroe.
