Navajo Rotation with the Indian Health Services in Shiprock, N.M.: The Navajo tribe is the largest Native American tribe in the United States. This rotation is a month long opportunity to provide medical and public health services to the underserved Navajo community in Shiprock, N.M. Numerous medicine-pediatrics residents have gone to Shiprock, and several returned as attending physicians. The serene environment, surrounding sites (Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Mesa Verde, Great Sand Dunes National Park, etc), and amazing people make this rotation truly worthwhile and representative of all the great opportunities available to Baylor residents.
BIPAI: Texas Children's Hospital has robust international rotation opportunities through the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative. Clinical sites include Lesotho, Angola, Botswana, Malawi and many more. Travel expenses for these rotations are covered by the pediatrics residency program making them financially accessible to all residents.
Both pediatrics and medicine faculty are invested in providing global health opportunities for those residents who are interested. Medicine-Pediatrics residents have been able to coordinate their own personalized rotation if there is a specific site where they would like to work.
