The Department of Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center has a long history of research participation. The department includes eight clinical divisions: colorectal, general, hepatopancreatobiliary, minimally invasive, oncology, transplant, trauma/acute care/critical care and vascular. Each division is focused on education and research in that specialty area.

The Department of Surgery at Baylor is committed to fostering an environment that promotes clinical research. A structured research education program, designed to attract attending and resident participation, provides the guidance, support and stimulus for department-wide involvement in scholarly activities. Through the collaboration of attending physicians, residents, Baylor Research Institute (BRI) staff, biostatistics support staff, Division of Surgical Education faculty, Surgical Research Peer Review Committee members, Associate Surgical Program directors in research and Surgical Simulation faculty, the Department of Surgery develops, studies and enrolls patients in clinical trials to benefit future patient care and change the way we educate students, residents and faculty.

The faculty is actively involved in industry-sponsored clinical trials that are focused on new technology, new drugs and new interventions for surgical disease.
