Opportunities to Volunteer

Want to get involved, stay connected? There are plenty of opportunities for alumni to consider.

Join one of many programs that support Baylor College of Medicine, including:

Patient, Physician and Society Preceptor Program

Patient, Physician and Society (PPS) is a mandatory course for all first and second-year learners. The course consists of weekly lectures where learners are taught about medical interviewing, taking histories, physical examination techniques, professional values and the social context of patients and physicians. Small group sessions allow learners to practice and hone their skills on each other. Integral to the course are preceptors, primary care physicians who take learners into their offices so that they can practice their clinical skills with generally well, ambulatory patients and receive feedback on their performance. Learners travel to their preceptor’s office one to two times a month and do a complete history and physical, focusing on recently-taught concepts and sharpening exam skills.

How to participate

Alumni who are interested in serving as a preceptor for learners, currently living in the Houston area and are practicing in primary care (pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine, etc.) may contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@bcm.edu or 1-844-BCM-ALUM (226-2586).
