Introduction
Baylor College of Medicine is a health sciences university that creates knowledge and applies science and discoveries to further education, healthcare and community service locally and globally.

Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, the only private medical school in the Greater Southwest, is recognized as a premier academic health science center and is known for excellence in education, research and patient care. Located in the Texas Medical Center, Baylor College of Medicine has affiliations with eight teaching hospitals, each known for medical excellence.

Baylor College of Medicine does not offer medical advice via email, Facebook, and other social media in the absence of an existing physician-patient relationship. Your medical question has not been analyzed by our medical staff.

Electronic communication cannot substitute for a medical evaluation in which the physician takes a history from a patient, conducts a physical examination and orders and interprets the appropriate diagnostic tests. It is unwise and unprofessional for a physician to provide medical advice without the information gained from such an evaluation.

If you believe you require medical care from a physician, for appointments, call 713-798-7600. For clinical trials, please visit our clinical research studies site:http://www.bcm.edu/clinicalstudies/. If you need emergency care call 911.

The college has total research support of $363 million, with $280 million from federal sources, and more than 90 research and patient-care centers and units. Currently, BCM trains more than 3,000 medical, graduate, nurse anesthesia, and physician assistant students, as well as residents and post-doctoral fellows.

As Baylor College of Medicine proceeds into the new century, these principles guide our growth and operation: courage, trust, discovery, excellence, service, leadership, collaboration, scholarship, and people.
