Diversity Discussions

Student diversity discussions will allow students to openly share their experiences and learn from their colleagues. The content of these meetings will largely be decided by student presenters. Students are encouraged to ask respectful questions following each presentation.

In the fall semester, the discussions focuses on summer travel and research opportunities, allowing students to share their summer experiences with their peers. In addition, incoming first year medical students have an opportunity to gain information and ask questions.

In the spring semester, the discussion centers on background and heritage. Medical students give presentations about their upbringing and share information that has contributed to their personal development.


If you have any suggestions on topics or would like to share your own experience, please contact Jesse Conyers (jesse_conyers@med.unc.edu) or Nellie O'Connor (kerry_oconnor@med.unc.edu).
