The second site, Baylor Scott & White CitySquare – Dallas, is part of the Baylor Scott & White Community Care network. It is located downtown and is dedicated to caring for the underserved populations of Dallas.

During rotations at Baylor University Medical Center and Children’s Medical Center Dallas, residents will attend conferences and grand rounds offered on campus.

In addition, as part of the family medicine continuity clinic, residents will participate in targeted lecture time pertinent to the practice of outpatient family medicine.

Residents will participate in a one-month research rotation at Baylor Scott & White Research Institute in their second year. During this time, residents will be assigned a research topic that they will contribute to through the remainder of their residency.

Residents will also participate in a longitudinal quality improvement project related to the practice of outpatient family medicine.
