Think Globally, Act Locally

Together with our affiliates, we offer resources and opportunities unmatched anywhere.

From our modest start with the opening of the Roy and Lillie Cullen Building in 1947 to our status today as one of the top health sciences institutions in the nation, we have a history of “…achieving amazing things.” Our unique partnerships with the Texas Medical Center, our affiliates and the City of Houston have helped shape the College as we "think globally and act locally.” This philosophy of community involvement drives our research efforts, the education of our trainees, who span the globe providing healthcare, and our collaborations with colleagues.

We invite you to explore the many ways Baylor College of Medicine is reaching beyond its walls to improve healthcare delivery and expand healthcare knowledge for members of our local, national and global communities.
