The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’s Trainee and Faculty Initiatives are intended to support our School of Medicine faculty and trainees (residents, fellows, and postdocs) from underrepresented groups across our clinical and basic science departments. These initiatives aim to strengthen our institution’s efforts to recruit trainees, faculty, and senior leaders from marginalized groups and to provide them opportunities to develop the skills necessary to be successful in their chosen fields.
Office at a Glance
Trainee and Faculty Initiatives in the School of Medicine are essential to ensuring that our pipeline of talented underrepresented students doesn’t end once the students receive their degrees, but rather carries them forward to support them as they progress through clinical trainee or postdoc programs and into faculty and leadership positions within academic medicine. These initiatives help to foster community amongst peers, create mentorship and sponsorship opportunities that enhance professional development, build inclusive work and learning environments, and ultimately create a workforce that reflects the diverse needs of our learners and patients.
Resources for Faculty Success
The primary mission of the Office of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development is to support the development of our faculty members and to provide resources to assure their academic success.
