The office is dedicated to developing our Diversity students as leaders in medicine. Our leadership initiative provides our students with activities that nurture the skills needed to achieve their career goals.
Our Faculty Advisory Team provides insight to innovative programs and important topics of concern for our emerging medical student leaders.
In collaboration with the Hispanic Center of Excellence, we:
- Provide a Leadership Seminar Series that invites professors of different specialties and disciplines
- Facilitate community engagement projects with students, for example the Einstein Community Health Outreach, the Bronx Science Health Opportunities Partnership Einstein Enrichment Program events. Many of these projects are located at sites away from the main teaching facilities;
- Enable faculty-student matching for research on health issues, particularly affecting URM groups; and
- Develop Cultural Competency Workshops/seminars.
