    I know that M.D. Anderson is technically a UT-Houston affiliate, but do Baylor students have any access? I'm pretty sure that there are no Baylor rotations there (except for away rotations), but what about research, mentoring, etc. with MDA faculty? Is this encouraged by Baylor or is it something that really isn't done?

    Thanks! :clap:

    I am a UT-Houston student. Although MD Anderson is a UT-Houston affiliate, I am sure that if you approached a faculty member there they would be glad to speak with you, offer advice, and provide mentorship. As far as research, you would have to ask; but my guess is that it would be up to the individual faculty members. You would likely not be able to get any credit through Baylor, though.

    As you mentioned, there are away electives that can be taken there after UTH students have had a shot. Check this link for more info - http://www.med.uth.tmc.edu/ms/04.htm

    Good luck!

    There were 2 Baylor students that matched at MD Anderson for rad onc this year -- I know for sure that one of them did extensive research with physicans at MD Anderson, as well as rotations. So no, you shouldn't have any problems as a Baylor student doing rotations and research there.
