Our faculty's expertise in educational theory, research, and practice contributes to the general professional education of the physician. We provide generalist medical education, promote lifelong learning, continuous quality improvement, and fostering community-responsive educational outcomes.
We provide both direct patient contact and non-clinical educational experiences, so learners complete the entire experiential learning cycle of concrete experience, active experimentation, reflective observation, and abstract conceptualization. We coordinate the departmental educational efforts across all levels of the medical education spectrum.
Residents in our diverse residency tracks must hold a core identity and demonstrate common competencies, which distinguish them as graduates of the Baylor Family Medicine Residency Program. Each track, however, should develop distinctive features that prepare residents to meet the needs of the healthcare environment and to respond to the career interests of students and residents.
