Additional Offerings


Baylor College of Medicine is ranked among the Top 15 graduate schools in the country by U.S. News and world report. Baylor also offers resources in research, education, and advanced degrees.


The goal of the Research Resources Office is to provide unified, coordinated and comprehensive researcher-focused support and education for all regulatory aspects of both investigator initiated, NIH cooperative group, and pharmaceutical industry studies, as well as provide centralized resources for the pre & post-award processes involved in developing and implementing the wide range of basic, translational or clinical studies performed by investigators.

The Virtually Integrated Institutions for Clinical and Translational Research (VIICTR) website serves as a platform for innovation, collaboration, and data sharing across a multi-institutional network of scientific investigators, clinicians, and community leaders to enable clinical and translational research and discovery.

The Fundamentals of Clinical Investigation course is held every July for 15 evenings. The objective of the course is to train physicians and other healthcare workers to interpret the clinical experimental literature.




The primary aim of the Master Teacher Fellowship Program is to enhance the educational mission of the College by improving the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of individual faculty. Specifically, the fellowship is designed to increase:

• Knowledge of key educational principles and theories.
• Skills in lecturing, facilitating, designing, and evaluating.
• Interest in and ability to serve as an educational leader.
• Self-reflection and readiness to benefit from constructive feedback from learners and peers

Clinical Scientist Training Program is committed to educating and training highly motivated individuals to become successful, independent clinical investigators and future leaders in academic medicine and biomedical research. It is designed primarily for junior faculty and senior sub-specialty fellows at Baylor College of Medicine. The Certificate of Added Qualification is designed for people who are interested in an introduction to clinical research but cannot commit the time for an in-depth study.


Advanced Degrees


As an integrated health sciences institution, Baylor College of Medicine is home to four schools that work together to train outstanding healthcare providers and scientists. In addition to the many degree and non-degree programs run under the auspices of each school, many residency and fellowship programs are run within the departments of Baylor College of Medicine to provide advanced clinical and research training for individuals who have already earned their M.D. and/or Ph.D.
