The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is working to develop pipelines and partnerships that will aid in the recruitment of faculty from our Mission Based Diversity Groups, in conjunction with the Office of Professional Recruitment. Additionally, we work to provide students with the opportunity to shadow and work in rural fields to encourage careers in rural medicine.
Academy for Development in Academic Medicine
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is also working with partners throughout the Medical School on a longitudinal certificate program, creating an internal pipeline for graduate students in basic science departments and residents in GME programs. The ADAM program helps build experience in mentorship, teaching, research, and scholarship, in order to prepare participants for careers in academic medicine. ADAM is a longitudinal program that occurs throughout one's graduate/resident educational tenure and pairs graduate students and residents with faculty mentors to develop the skills needed for a career in academic medicine. Educational sessions are scheduled every 2-3 months and cover topics related to the development of academic medicine career skills. The 1st pilot was successful and we are now into our second year. The program will be a 3-4 year longitudinal program, culminating with a longitudinal scholarly project and a certificate of completion.
