Our Program Vision
Our vision is to become the leader in developing and influencing policies that promote translation of scientific innovation into medical practice and improve patient outcomes.
The Health Policy Program fosters collaboration and engagement among Baylor College of Medicine faculty and students interested in health policy, provides health policy education to medical students and residents, and creates a national spotlight for health policy events and research. This program aims to develop evidence-based health policy propositions based on research conducted by the Baylor faculty and convert complex policy-relevant research findings into straightforward communication that will be disseminated to inform stakeholders and the public.
Baylor College of Medicine President and CEO, Dr. Paul Klotman, has charged the center to build this program as an effort to unify the ongoing health policy efforts at the College.
