Your experience will depend on what part of the department you fall into. IT selects the best sales person for the CIO position and has little control on what this person does once they get in. Last CIO was horrible and cost the College tons of Money on sales pitches that never happened. The College overall is excellent with some of the best doctors from around the nation.
The Ancillary support for these group is poorly managed and is costing the college a lot of money since they more tune to the sales pitch than the actual work.
They are over inflated in staff and are getting false data from their director.

Assisting patient's to exam room, obtain vital signs, collect lab specimen if needed. Assist physician with exam or procedures if needed. I learned that all patient's are special and they are #1. My clinical manager was a great. She taught us to work hard to achieve our goals in clinic and in life. My co-workers we were a team that worked hard to get the job done. I did not like that we could not give more time to help some of the patient's as they needed. I loved seeing my patients and my patients loved seeing me.

Instructor of Medicine (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 28, 2016
In the am I was responsible for Admissions to the Ben Taub Hospital. I attended rounds by midmorning and worked in the out-patient setting in the afternoons. I participated in Tumor Board on Wednesdays. I learned a great deal while attending rounds such as the different clinical trials and research studies that are conducted to find more effective ways to treat, prevent, or diagnosis cancer. I was fortunate to have worked side by side with physicians who are expert in the field with a strong back ground in cancer treatments. My co-workers were all hard workers such as myself which made the work environment pleasant. We all worked well together and helped each other out when needed. The hardest part of the job was having to tell a patient there is no cure available. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I was helping patients through difficult times.
Constantly learning the latest treatment regimens. Attending NCCN conference yearly
long clinic days, sometimes lasting until 8:00-9:00 in the evening
Baylor College of Medicine is a great place to work. Not only is there always something new to learn everyday but Baylor provides tuition assistance for anyone who wants to obtain a degree and make themselves more marketable.
