Our program has gained nationwide recognition from students, their advisers, and granting agencies as one of the most successful ever created due to our incomparable resources in the Texas Medical Center and people who truly believe in opening doors of opportunity to college students.

"I came to Baylor College of Medicine in 2014 as a SMART student after I came across the program when searching for a summer program. I loved it! I survived the Houston summer and still wanted to come back to Houston. There is so much collaboration here, not just within BCM, but throughout the medical center." - Brittany Armstrong, Ph.D. Student and Former SMART Participant
