Faculty Scholars Program

We designed the Faculty Scholars Program to recruit and advance our faculty from underrepresented groups in medicine. Academic medicine, with its emphasis on clinical care, conducting and publishing research, teaching, and professional leadership, can be challenging. Through mentorship and coaching, we provide resources that have not always been accessible to all in our field.

To recruit faculty from underrepresented groups and help them develop their careers and expertise, we work with several internal institutional partners including:


Retaining minority faculty members can be just as challenging as recruitment. We incorporate individualized check-in meetings between junior faculty members and experts in academic medicine career development, providing the support and the time they need to progress.
