Leadership Series

This leadership series includes presentations and workshops by influential community partners and healthcare leaders addressing the challenges of race, gender, socioeconomic experiences and obtaining the opportunities to hold a leadership position. Medical students will find value from real world stories to pursue their goals of healthcare leadership and to enhance current leadership skills. The expectation is that students will take advantage of this resource to develop their leadership skills and apply them to their career.

Current Conversations

Current Conversations is an open floor dialogue series led by the Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Community Initiatives welcoming students, staff, and faculty to explore and dig deeper into real world and up to date issues facing society today. This takes place every other month of the academic schedule and will follow topics related to race, gender, religion, and politics and their effects on healthcare.



Diversity in Medicine
