Summer program prepares undergraduates for a science career
This summer, 87 students from 27 states are participating in the annual SMART (Summer Medical and Research Training) Program at Baylor College of Medicine. These students join the hundreds more who attended over the past 27 years, providing themselves with an opportunity to get a head start on a career in science.
As part of the nine-week program, students get real life experience in labs and clinical rotations. They hear from top researchers and clinical faculty at Baylor and get help with GRE preparation.
Throughout the history of the program, 2,439 students have participated, representing 49 states. Many have gone on to enroll at Baylor as well as other graduate schools to pursue their love of science and medicine. Some of the program’s graduates are on faculty at Baylor today, while others hold faculty positions across the country.
"Since coming to Houston in 1943, Baylor College of Medicine has been an integral part of Houston’s transition into one of the nation’s greatest cities. We are proud to be part of what makes Houston great."
- Paul Klotman, M.D., President, CEO and Executive Dean, Baylor College of Medicine
