As our mission states Baylor College of Medicine creates knowledge and applies science and discoveries to further education, healthcare and community service locally and globally. To foster discovery that addresses the needs of a pluralistic community both in Houston and around the world, we must view complex issues through the lenses of a diverse workforce that is inclusive of the broad range of perspectives represented by those we seek to serve.

Houston is home to one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse populations in the United States. Through outreach at every stage of the educational experience, Baylor is uniquely positioned to engage students on a life long learning path providing them the experience and knowledge to bring their unique perspective to education, research and healthcare in service to their community.
