BUCOM is committed to developing a robust research environment for our faculty and students through innovative approaches and collaborations in diverse research fields such as basic science, translational, population health, medical education, and clinical research. As part of the Baptist system and strategically located in the heart of the of the medical district, BUCOM is positioned to nurture research relationships within the Baptist Memorial Health Care system as well as with other research institutions in the area.

BUCOM students also participate in a longitudinal four-semester research course. This course introduces students to the basic principles of research during their first semester and culminates with the development, execution, and dissemination of their own research projects and results.
