Welcome to the NMPRA DEI Corner!
Calling all interested residents, medical students, alumni and faculty! NMPRA has developed a committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). The purpose of this committee is to develop a pipeline program for under-represented minorities specifically in the field of Med-Peds. We aim to foster a community and safe space for those who identify as underrepresented in medicine (UiM) within our national Med-Peds network. Through this committee we hope to provide a protected space for discussions of justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, and representation. We will aim to promote visibility of UiM faculty and residents, strengthen mentorship across generations, and facilitate recruitment and retention of those who are UiM with the goal of creating a more diverse Med-Peds specialty across the nation. If interested in participating for the upcoming academic year please email our NMPRA DEI Director @ [email protected] or click here to join our list serve: https://forms.gle/
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at NMPRA
A reflection of the communities we serve
As physicians, we dedicate our lives to the betterment of our society’s health. We believe this achievement can only be attained by ensuring all voices, backgrounds, and walks of life are appropriately represented and celebrated. We seek to perpetuate a culture of thoughtfulness and inclusion, breaking all barriers to expand minority representation in medicine.
We Commit To:
Work towards diminishing healthcare disparities
Highlight and support underrepresented peoples in medicine
Serve as a concentrated community of advisors, mentors, and colleagues
Simplify pathways and pipelines for minorities in medicine
Ensuring diversity in Med-Peds for generations to come
