Welcome to Baylor College of Medicine


The goal of our fellowship is to train emergency medicine residency graduates to be innovative leaders in the field of global health. Set in the most diverse city in the nation, with a wide range of international partners, we provide fellows with custom training designed to hone existing clinical skills and academic interests while providing broader exposure to the diverse field of global health both at home and abroad. These include global emergency medicine development and education, tropical medicine, health policy, disaster response and humanitarian relief.

We are not taking a fellow for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Fellowship Experience

Our two-year academic fellowship is set in the most diverse city in the nation. The National School of Tropical Medicine is on-campus and offers our fellows extensive tropical medicine training as well as lecturing opportunities. Leaders in global and innovative healthcare across disciplines are also at BCM, providing ready partners for mentorship and academic projects both locally and abroad, including the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative, Baylor Global Initiatives, the TMC Innovation Institute and many others.
