Professional Statement

Dr Wilson W Lam has been part of the Baylor College of Medicine family since medical school in 1999, completing his combined internal medicine-pediatrics residency, combined adult and pediatric cardiology fellowship, and clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship under the BCM umbrella. He has been involved with medical education for medical students, internal medicine and general pediatrics residents, and adult and pediatric cardiology fellows from didactic lectures, clinical services, and journal clubs. He also coaches the highly accomplished internal medicine Medical Jeopardy team and serves as an associate program director for the BCM internal medicine residency program.

Dr Lam's clinical and research interests include clinical outcomes of complex congenital heart disease, particularly device and arrhythmia management. He is also interested in using older technology in novel arenas and demographic predictors in medical education.

He is a native Houstonian and an avid Rice baseball fan.
