Baylor College of Medicine is a health sciences university that creates knowledge and applies science and discoveries to further education, healthcare and community service locally and globally. Baylor College of Medicine began its inaugural summer internship program in June 2014 and has provided students the opportunity to enhance their personal development, as well as their understanding of Baylor College of Medicine, and its affiliated clinical and academic partners. This internship will expose the intern to the administrative roles that support the clinical, research, and education missions of the institution.

They will be responsible for the education and development of the intern and provide supervision and guidance during the Internship. Melanie Gregory, staff recruiter, will also support the program.

The internship supervisor will be assigned based on the area of the internship.
