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.

To create a permanent source of funding for the ongoing work of our trainees, the Department of Family and Community Medicine has established the Family and Community Medicine Educational Endowment. The endowment will strengthen educational resources, provide more varied electives for students and residents, and strengthen our residency program by funding unfunded rotations. We currently have received just over $30,000.

Your donations are tax-deductible and provide an essential support for our trainees to have exceptional and career-defining experiences.

To make a secure online donation, please go to our Giving to Baylor page and set your designation to “other,” and in the space provided enter “Family and Community Medicine Educational Endowment.”
