Welcome to the Methodist Education and Research Learner Information Network (MERLIN)!

MERLIN is a web based application system to simplify the educational and research trainee application, selection, and orientation processes at the Houston Methodist Hospital sites in and around the Houston, Texas area. Learners interested in an educational opportunity at any of the Houston Methodist facilities should use this system to apply to educational programs and opportunities within Graduate Medical Education, Allied Health, Clinical, and Research Training for all programs and departments throughout the institution.

You are encouraged to review the system requirements before creating an account and applying. The web site takes advantage of several features that are not compatible with older systems. Upon successfully creating an account you will receive information in the email address you designate, which should be a permanent contact for you.  We are committed to consistently reviewing this system for compliance and accessibility.

If you experience technical difficulties when submitting an initial application or when revisiting the system, send an email to
