M.D. Program Curriculum

In addition to the pages in this section of the handbook, important information about the M.D. Program curriculum can also be found on the following:
Elective Program

The electives listing gives students the opportunity to select approximately 25 percent of their medical curriculum and thereby places a major share of the responsibility for determining the direction of the educational effort directly on the student. To provide the student with wide latitude in designing their elective program, the faculty offers a wide variety of elective courses.



Baylor College of Medicine has developed pathways to help students explore their interests and customize their education to match their career goals.


Curriculum Committee

The Curriculum Committee has the integrated institutional authority to oversee and direct the overall design, management and evaluation of a coherent and coordinated curriculum for the medical education program, which is codified by decanal mandate.
