Positioned to Lead
Baylor College of Medicine is uniquely positioned to lead in bringing discoveries made in the laboratory to patients. Several years ago, College leadership recognized that resources and infrastructure were necessary to facilitate this process. Therefore, the College has made and continues to make significant investments to provide the foundation necessary. A few of these are highlighted below.
Recruitment and Retention
The College’s single most important resource for ensuring discoveries are made and applied to improve human health is its human capital. Growing the Baylor advantage depends on recruiting and retaining experts in informatics, early-stage clinical research and medicinal chemistry while continuing to add individuals with strengths across basic and clinical science disciplines.
Our recruiting processes attract diverse professionals from around the world. Once at Baylor, we focus on engaging our faculty as research demonstrates that engaged faculty are more likely to remain at their institution and are more productive. The College participates in the AAMC StandPoint Engagement Surveys. Baylor faculty consistently rate their satisfaction with the College, their departments, and their peers higher than faculty at other academic medical centers that participate in this initiative.
