Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI)/IME Certificate Program for Junior Underrepresented-in-Medicine Faculty Educators

In 2021, the IME and ODI were proud to launch the first certificate program in clinical teaching for junior educator faculty who are underrepresented in medicine. This four-part skills-based certificate series focuses on teaching in the clinical environment and is specifically designed to meet the expressed needs of young faculty who are interested in a career in medical education. The program also seeks to address the need for career guidance and sponsorship though an ongoing program of scholar sponsorship, and dearth of role model representation through the inclusion of senior master faculty of color educators in the programs.

An invitation for registration goes out to faculty in the fall and the program runs in January and February of each year.

We are proud to recognize the second faculty cohort who completed the program in 2023:
