A Baylor College of Medicine student reading to children in Santa Anna, Honduras as part of Houston Shoulder to Shoulder Foundation, which was founded as a partnership between Baylor and the people of Santa Anna.

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.
