The Baylor College of Medicine Postdoctoral Association was formed in the summer of 1997 by a gathering of postdoctoral fellows who felt there was no forum available at the College to address issues specific to postdoctoral trainees. Baylor College of Medicine Postdoctoral Association represents approximately 600 postdoctoral scientists at Baylor College of Medicine. 

The PDA serves as a resource where postdocs can:

  • Receive information on career development opportunities currently available through the College
  • Obtain written policies concerning healthcare, employment and parking
  • Gain a sense of community for all postdoctoral fellows


The Baylor College of Medicine Postdoctoral Assocation invites you to become part of the association's Executive Committee and take an active role in addressing the various issues that concern the post-doctoral community. Membership in the PDA Executive Committee is voluntary and free. All postdoctoral scholars at Baylor College of Medicine are considered members of the PDA and there is no fee to belong to this organization.
