Undergraduate Medical Education

Clinical Training Program

To help address the state’s health care workforce shortage, the Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) College of Medicine and Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, have joined forces to establish a clinical training program in Dallas.

Through the clinical training program in Dallas, students will complete their first 18 months of medical education at the TAMHSC-College of Medicine campus in Bryan-College Station. During their last two-and-a-half years of medical school, students enrolled in the program will complete clinical rotations in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Radiology, and Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center and other clinical affiliates.

Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO)

Elective rotations are available to fourth-year medical students from outside of the TAMHSC-College of Medicine that are interested in pursuing a residency at Baylor University Medical Center. Interested allopathic or osteopathic students can apply through the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities application service (VSLO).

Elective rotations that are typically offered include:

  • Dermatology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Family Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Gynecologic Oncology
  • Internal Medicine
  • Obstetrics/Gynecology
  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Pathology
  • Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R)
  • Radiology

Visiting electives may be offered in two or four week rotations from July through January. Students can begin viewing courses and dates being offered, prerequisites, and institutional requirements on VSLO starting in March. Applications will be accepted annually starting April 1st.
