Pediatric Global Child Health Track
The Department of Pediatrics offers a Global Child Health Residency Track, part of the categorical pediatrics program. This is a four year residency program where you will spend one year at Baylor Pediatrics AIDS Initiative hospitals in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Lead and Acquire: Pediatric Primary Care for Vulnerable and Underserved Populations
The LEAD and ACQUIRE Leadership in Pediatric Primary Care of Underserved and Vulnerable Populations is a three-year categorical pediatric training program. The curriculum will specifically focus on pediatric primary care of underserved and vulnerable populations and will begin recruiting in the fall of 2016 for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The call for pediatricians with a commitment to serve vulnerable populations is becoming more imminent given the current climate for underserved children’s healthcare in the United States today. The Lead and Acquire Pediatric Residency track is focused on training future pediatric leaders working towards narrowing the effects of poverty that perpetuate social detriments of health. The curriculum will focus on advocacy, community collaboration, quality improvement, public policy, and leadership skill development.
Combined Training in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine
The departments of Pediatrics and Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine jointly sponsor the Med/Peds program. This four-year program provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient training in the two rigorous and complementary environments.
Combined Training in Physician Scientist Training and Development Program
The Physician Scientist Training and Development Program was added to the residency in 2015. This track is catered to those seeking to pursue a career as a principal investigator or a pediatrician scientist.
