Houston is a diverse city that is a natural venue for the Pediatric Global Health Residency Program at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital. This four-year residency program, started in 2010, offers educational opportunities, patient care, and global networking that shapes Baylor pediatric residents into leaders in the field of global health.
The curriculum's schedule is broken down below:
- 36 months of pediatric rotations in the United States
- 12-month assignment at a Texas Children’s Global Health Network site
Each week for the entire training period, residents participate in a half-day continuity clinic. Baylor College of Medicine global child health residents are preferably assigned to the Center for Women and Children in Greenspoint (part of Texas Children's Health Plan) or the the Center for Women and Chidren Southwest. These two clinics provide care for underserved populations.
Residents have the choice to participate in a plethora of advocacy events and projects with our faculty members whose projects range in all areas of children's health, including global health. Through the annual Advocacy Fair, residents are able to collaborate on governmental advocacy efforts at the local, state, and national level and attend advocacy talks that are interwoven through the conference and schedule. Our residents colloborate with the residents in the LEAD program.
Medical students from Baylor College of Medicine receive their pediatric training at Texas Children's Hospital and Ben Taub Hospital. During their time in Houston, residents have the opportunity to engage in bedside or didactic teaching with medical students and other trainees. While abroad, global child health residents have the opportunity to participate in medical education and healthcare provider trainings at their assigned site.
