Leaders in global and innovative healthcare across disciplines are also at BCM, providing ready partners for mentorship and academic projects both locally and abroad, including the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative, Baylor Global Initiatives, the TMC Innovation Institute and many others.
