The typical student schedule is Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can also choose to participate in emergency on-call cases.

Our surgeons also offer percutaneous laser disc ablation procedures and Kyon total hip replacement surgery.

Dallas-Fort Worth is a large metropolitan area with all the associated creature comforts, which include easy airport access, abundant housing, and cultural attractions, such as museums, zoos, restaurants, and parks. For unique experiences, check out the Stockyards to watch a cattle drive or visit Reunion Tower for stunning panoramic views.
