Baylor College of Medicine launched the Volunteer Time Off Program in 2015, and since then employees have committed more than 870 hours working in the community. The program gives employees one paid day off a year to serve in the community.
It’s August, and that means there are lots of new faces around the halls of Baylor College of Medicine. New medical school and graduate school students started July 31, with both groups being welcomed at new-student orientations.
Two years ago, leadership, faculty, staff and trainees set out to create innovative, interdisciplinary learning opportunities that will prepare students for careers in team-based science and healthcare. The result was a new initiative called Team Launch.
