Lending a Hand

Baylor community supports local and global community though individual efforts

Since moving to Houston in 1943, Baylor College of Medicine has been giving back to its community. Over time, that community has expanded to become global and the services provided have multiplied. But throughout our history, our commitment has been strong to provide excellent training for physicians, scientists and health care professionals; to focus on scientific research that ultimately will benefit people; and to offer the highest level of both basic and complex medical care, across all populations. In the year 2016, we could not be prouder of the people behind all these efforts. At Baylor College of Medicine, each student, trainee, faculty and staff member contributes to our mission. And those individual and collaborative efforts make our community a better place.

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.
