Valley Baptist Medical Center is proud to be home to the Valley Baptist Family Practice Residency Program.


We provide faith-based health care for 20,000 people:

  • 60 percent adult
  • 25 percent pediatrics
  • 15 percent elderly
  • 10 percent OB

We are ready, able and willing to give students and residents the best hands-on experience around. The mission of our program is to provide excellent care to our patients, quality training to our residents and compassionate outreach in our community as we strive to follow Christ’s example of healing lives and relationships.

We are a Christ-centered training program with a Biblical worldview. As people of faith we help our students and residents share their lives, their love and their medical skills in a way that is effective and satisfying to all involved.

We believe in real outreach to the community:

  • Wednesday free clinics serve the very poorest Colonias in our tri-county area
  • A Summer Medical Institute reaches 1,000 patients in Mexico and in South Texas

Our fully accredited program has a unique, apprenticeship-style curriculum that provides real-life training for family physicians. We have more clinic experience and less wasted rotational time so that the graduate is prepared to move into a clinic, manage the clinic and practice family medicine.

We are excited about what God is doing here in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
