To our applicants,
We are so happy that you are considering Baylor for your internal medicine or prelim year training. The five of us have loved our time at Baylor and are excited to share more with you about the BCM residency experience in the coming months.
A little bit more about us:
We came to Baylor Internal Medicine from medical schools within Texas and beyond, including other regions (the Midwest, Southeast) in the United States and internationally.
We are each part of physician-physician couples and two of us separately couples-matched to BCM for residency.
We are passionate about the role of residents as both life-long learners and educators of our patients, our peers, and our communities. We view these as essential to our work experience. We were each leaders of clinical and medical resident committees and currently steer our comprehensive curriculum of Morning Reports, Noon Conferences, simulation, and didactics.
We believe strongly that diversity at work and in the community is an important aspect of a safe, healthy, and effective environment and are happy to find this in Houston and at Baylor (and something we will continue to advocate for).
We are each interested in further subspecialty training and have found BCM Internal Medicine provides broad exposure to our desired subspecialties in outpatient and inpatient settings, including critical care, procedures, and research. We're excited to follow in the footsteps of our senior residents who have matched well into these subspecialties!
At Baylor, we have found an incredibly diverse and unique training experience serving a wide spectrum of patient populations at four hospitals: our beloved county hospital Ben Taub, the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the world-renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center, and our academic center Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. These institutions are part of the largest and most innovative medical campus in the world, the Texas Medical Center.
It has been an honor to care for patients and learn alongside our colleagues in the TMC and Baylor community at large.
We look forward to meeting you and learning with you!
- Christian, Divya, Josh, Komal, and Ruchit
