The Baylor San Antonio Pediatric Residency Program demonstrates its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion by incorporating the following actions:

Recruitment

  • Implementation of deliberate strategies to facilitate interviewing and matching a more diverse resident cohort, 
  • A new holistic review system for ERAS applications, and
  • Intentionally improved diversity among members of the Residency Recruitment Committee.

DEI Student, Resident, and Faculty Education

  • Development and delivery of a longitudinal DEI curriculum including workshops and book clubs to foster each individual’s transformation from bystander to upstander and
  • Resident-led noon conferences to explore threats to the safety of the learning environment for people of diverse (race, ethnicity, gender, ability) backgrounds.

Patient Care

  • Simulation-based educational research to assess the impact of bias on patient outcomes and
  • A case-based resident-designed lecture series to promote cultural competence and caring for children of diverse backgrounds.

Baylor College of Medicine fosters diversity as a prerequisite to accomplishing our institutional mission and setting standards for excellence in training healthcare providers and providing patient-centered care. Read more about our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
