MBMC Student and Faculty Orientation

We are delighted to host students for clinical experiences. We hope your experiences enhance your education and growth as a future healthcare provider.

Since 1911, Mississippi Baptist Medical Center has served Mississippi as a Christian-based, non-profit comprehensive medical center. At Baptist Health Systems, we take pride in being more than just a hospital: we are Jackson's first hospital. From our beginning in 1911 in an eight-room wooden frame home, we have grown to a hospital licensed for more than 600 beds - the largest private hospital in the state.

Mission Statement

In keeping with the three-fold ministry of Christ — Healing, Preaching and Teaching — Baptist Memorial Health Care is committed to providing quality health care.

Vision Statement

We will be the provider of choice by transforming the delivery of health care through partnering with patients, families, physicians, care providers, employers and payers; and by offering safe, integrated, patient-focused, high quality, innovative and cost-effective care.


  • Compassionate care and service
  • Teamwork and trust
  • Innovation and excellence
  • Respect for the individual and the value of diversity

New Faculty Instructions

Welcome to Baptist! We are delighted to host you and your students for clinical experiences on our campus. If there is anything that we can do to assist you, please feel free to contact the Education Resource Center (ERC) at 601-968-1712. The ERC department is located on the Lower Level of the main hospital, near the service elevators.

There are several steps for a faculty that is new to our facility. It is required to have these things done prior to your first day of clinical. We appreciate your assistance. See the following information:

  1. Call 601-968-1712 to set up a time during business hours for you to go to our Human Resource Department (HR) and have an ID badge made with your picture. HR is located on the second floor of the Medical Arts West Building adjoined to the parking garage.
  2. Stop by the Security Department Office on the Lower Level and fill out a "Security Card" with your car tag identification, make and model of your car. This is required before allowing access to our medication rooms.
  3. Please come to the Education Resource Center for a form that allows access to the Accudose Machines on each unit, which are automated dispensing units for medication. It needs to be signed by the ERC department and given to pharmacy.
  4. Email educationcenter@bmhcc.org to reserve a room for post conference or computer lab. Thank you, and we look forward to working with you!
