Baylor Family Medicine at Kirby Track

Of important note is that we will be matching all six residents to the Northwest Clinic. We have decided to focus our training on the underserved population that is served at Northwest Clinic and Harris Health System. We apologize to those applicants that are interested in the Kirby track and hope you will consider the Baylor Program if your interests and passions lie with caring for the underserved.
