About Baylor University Medical Center
Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, provides a wide variety of experiences that would be challenging to encounter at smaller facilities. As the flagship hospital for a 26 hospital health system, BUMC is an integral part of driving change within the system. We are a Level 1 Trauma, comprehensive stroke center and receives some of the sickest patients in the Dallas area. Our medicine, cardiology, and ICUs often receive patient transfers for higher levels of care, always ensuring our residents see the most interesting cases in the system. We are always looking for additional experiences to add to the program so it can be tailored to your interests.
