The Global Health Track is a four year program available for Baylor College of Medicine medical students interested in global health.

The track consists of courses, clinical training, research opportunities, and electives abroad that are designed to give medical students a broader understanding of medicine in a global context and prepare them for a career in global health. Students who complete the track will receive a certificate at graduation.

Graduates of the track will also have an opportunity to acquire sufficient class hours, skills, and knowledge level to sit for the examination leading to the Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Traveler's Health, sponsored by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
