Pharmacy Residency (PGY1)

Community Clinics

Parkland is invested in the health and well-being of Dallas County. In 1987, we pioneered the Community Oriented Primary Care (COPC) program to offer affordable, comprehensive, and conveniently located medical care throughout Dallas County neighborhoods. The community clinic program is designated by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Physician Practice Connections - Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Through our comprehensive range of services we provide patients with a medical home in their own community – a place where they can work with their medical team to achieve the best health possible. Our patients are encouraged to build strong, long-term relationships with their doctors and other care providers.

With 16 health centers and five mobile vans, our network of community clinics provide high quality, affordable and accessible medical care throughout Dallas County.
