US News and World Report ranked Baylor College of Medicine (BCM); located in Houston, Texas, as one of the top 20 medical colleges for research in the United States. The college was founded, in 1900, by community leaders and doctors in Dallas, Texas. It formed an alliance, three years later, with Baylor University located in Waco, Texas. It was originally called the Baylor University College of Medicine. In 1918, the college was the only private medical school in the state. In 1947, the school moved to its current location at the Roy and Lillie Cullen Building in the Texas Medical Center. A graduate school was established in 1948 with the help of Doctor Michael E. DeBakey, who used new surgical techniques which brought the school international acclaim. In 1969, the school ended its affiliation with Baylor University and changed its name to Baylor College of Medicine.
