In February 2013, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital entered into a partnership with CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System to develop San Antonio’s only freestanding children’s hospital. Joining forces with a hospital with a rich history of quality patient care and teaching, this new relationship has allowed Baylor to once again be on the forefront of pediatric medical education as we have developed a distinct pediatric residency program based at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio.
Being able to create something completely new has been a phenomenal opportunity which has allowed us to focus on the resident to build our program towards the latest concepts in medical education with the flexibility to innovate in a new environment. We have taken the Baylor standard of excellence into a medium sized program with a learner driven, personalized curriculum which will enable residents to flourish and excel. Our residents enjoy close interactions with faculty and have the opportunity to strongly influence the growth and development of our program.
