About the Scholarship


Baylor College of Medicine has a long-standing history of promoting and supporting diversity in its training of the next generation of physicians. In the Henry J.N.

Medical student rotations in our department, provide a rich experience with a diverse patient population that challenges and strengthens diagnostic skills. With our recognition as a level one trauma center, you will gain experience managing the blunt and penetrating traumatic injuries.

To help promote those who are Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM), the Henry J.N. Taub Department of Emergency Medicine is proud to offer four $1,500 scholarships for those whose background are underrepresented in medicine. Additionally, our BCM EM Residency 2021 Black Alumni and 2021 Latinx Alumni are sponsoring two scholarships.
