New Initiative!

Calling all interested residents, medical students, alumni and faculty! NMPRA is developing a subcommittee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). The  purpose of this subcommittee 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 2021-2022 academic year please email our NMPRA Traditional Secretary Adrianna Stanley at [email protected] or [email protected]!

DEI Mentorship Program

Thank you for your interest in our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts! We are excited to launch a mentorship program as part of this initiative, which will help connect underrepresented medical students with residents and faculty who can serve as mentors. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below and we will do our best to match you with a mentor!

This can be a country of origin or your ethnic heritage. We are only asking this question for matching purposes and it is okay to leave it blank as we know this is a tough question to answer!
