Baylor College of Medicine

Initially established as a section in the Department of Medicine, Emergency Medicine became the Department of Emergency Medicine in 2017 and plays a crucial role in medical education and research. It also provides compassionate, dignified and state-of-the-art emergency care for residents of Harris County, regardless of insurance coverage, socioeconomic status, native language, literacy or disability.

Each Baylor Emergency Medicine faculty physician is board certified or board eligible in the clinical specialty of Emergency Medicine. Located at Ben Taub Hospital, our emergency team includes more than 20 emergency-trained, board-certified physicians from leading healthcare institutions around the country with a diversity of expertise.

How can we fix underrepresentation of women in medicine? The solution begins long before residency, but the ability to diversity our workforce starts with residents.
