Center for Underrepresented Minorities in Academic Medicine sponsors medical student research
The Center for Underrepresented Minorities in Academic Medicine is designed to research and inform issues that pertain to minority faculty and students in academic medicine. The Center has worked closely with student organizations, SNMA as well as ALMS and has also worked with students in the BRIDGE to Medicine, Masters degree program. The first Bridge student was sponsored last year and completed a project on minority faculty and tenure and a current Bridge student is continuing this research looking at offices of diversity in our medical schools and the presence of minority faculty and students. The Center is also sponsoring a 4th year elective for the first time teaching research methods, literature review and writing skills as they relate specifically to issues involving underrepresented minority faculty in academic medicine.
