The Dr. Kelly DeScioli Global Child Health Pediatrics Residency Program at Baylor College of Medicine is a fully accredited pediatric residency program. Residents will spend three years in Houston and an additional year at an international assignment primarily caring for children with HIV, malnutrition, tuberculosis, malaria, and other infectious diseases.

Partnered with The Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) at Texas Children’s Hospital, the program is an ideal platform to provide residents meaningful experiences in global child health. The 200,000 children and families treated for HIV since BIPAI at Texas Children’s Hospital began in 1996 is more than the number of HIV-infected children treated by any other institution in the world.

Our goals are to prepare residents to address the critical need for lifesaving pediatric health care, pediatric education and training, clinical research and child advocacy in resource-limited settings and to prepare residents for leadership roles in health care delivery for the underserved globally. Our Pediatric Board pass rate for the Dr. Kelly DeScioli Global Child Health Pediatric Residents is 100 percent, according to the American Board of Pediatrics.
