Professional Development for Diversity House Staff Professional Development Program

House Staff Professional Development Program

The Office of Diversity Affairs House Staff Professional Development Program provides support, mentorship, and professional development to all residents and fellows at NYU Langone. This program is open to all interested candidates regardless of identity; we particularly encourage applications from individuals of underrepresented backgrounds, including but not limited to those who identify as Black or African American, Latina/o/e, Native American, Native Pacific Islander, or Native Alaskan.

The goals of the program are as follows:

  • to provide house staff with an opportunity to network and collaborate with faculty, institutional leadership, and fellow house staff across departments
  • to engage house staff in educational sessions focused on the transition to academic faculty positions, including applications, interviewing, and promotion
  • to highlight for house staff opportunities that exist within NYU Langone, including research and scholarship during their training, as well as in their future careers

The program provides a formal opportunity for mentorship as house staff advance along their path in academic medicine.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact us at diversity@nyulangone.org.
