The Office of Student and Resident Diversity is committed to increasing the diversity of our residents to more closely reflect the population of patients that we serve. In collaboration with the Office of Graduate Medical Education, we provide special services to department residency programs to support their efforts.

These services include:

  • Funding for diversity-focused resident recruitment events and programs
  • Networking opportunities with current medical students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine
  • Connecting students and residents to faculty diversity programs to raise awareness about careers in academic medicine
  • Funding for current residents to present diversity-related scholarly work at academic conferences

You can make a funding request through our form at
