Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine announce a joint admissions program: 15 qualified applicants will be admitted jointly to the university and the medical school. The program encourages future physicians and biomedical researchers to explore a varied undergraduate academic path in liberal arts and other fields before entering medical school, so its graduates will be scientifically competent, broadly educated, socially knowledgeable and able to communicate to patients.
