President's Message

Dr. Paul Klotman

Baylor College of Medicine is a health sciences university with a legacy of excellence and a vision for improving health through science, scholarship and innovation.

As president of this great institution, I am grateful for the tremendous support the community has demonstrated for Baylor College of Medicine. Outstanding advocates and a loyal alumni base are great strengths for Baylor.

We have adopted core values that we consider in everything that we do at the College. Those values are Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Teamwork and Excellence. In each of our four schools – School of Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Health Professions and National School of Tropical Medicine, we incorporate these values, as we do in our mission areas of research, patient care, education and community service.

I appreciate hearing from the College's many constituents and I hope you will continue to contact me to share your thoughts and suggestions for new programs at Baylor.

Through creative solutions, developed by those both internal and external to the College, we are developing innovative new approaches to diagnose and treat disease, deliver the highest quality healthcare, and prepare a new generation of exceptional scientists and healthcare providers. Please take a look at our 2019 Annual Report, as well as our Mission, Vision and Values.

It takes the talents and diligent efforts of our academic leadership, faculty, staff, and trainees to maintain the excellence that we command. I see this work every day by all those around me. Baylor College of Medicine is an exceptional place. 

Paul Klotman, M.D.
