SEED Mentoring Program
NYU School of Medicine’s Supporting, Educating, and Enriching Diversity (SEED) Mentoring Program supports MD students who are underrepresented in medicine by offering them structured mentoring while in medical school. SEED was created by members of the Student Diversity Initiative, who work with the Office of Diversity Affairs to offer first-year medical students mentoring by upper-year medical students, residents, and attending physicians.
The program’s goals include professional development, community building, and education through group and one-on-one interaction.
SEED now includes mentoring from administrative leaders who are also underrepresented in medicine and have achieved high levels of institutional leadership.
If you have questions about the SEED program, contact Mason Patenaude, recruitment and retention program coordinator, Office of Diversity Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-263-8613.
