Professional Development for Diversity
NYU School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity Affairs provides professional development opportunities to help underrepresented students, faculty, and house staff advance their opportunities in medicine.
Intersections Dialogue Series
The Intersections Dialogue Series explores the intersections of identities within medicine and healthcare. The series provides an opportunity for community discourse and reflection on biological, social, and cultural categories—including class, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, and others—and their impact on and within medicine.
We offer these dialogues throughout the year.
Faculty Professional Development Series
Our Faculty Professional Development Series features workshops and presentations for faculty who are underrepresented in medicine to focus on career advancement and professional growth.
We provide educational and informative topics on CV writing, networking, negotiations, and more to support the professional development of faculty underrepresented in medicine.
Residency Professional Development Series
We offer the Residency Professional Development Series to help residents grow professionally. We focus on assisting residents underrepresented in medicine to reach the next level of career success.
We collaborate with NYU School of Medicine’s Office of Medical Education to offer the Women’s Initiative, a seminar series that provides opportunities for discussion and engagement about gender differences in academic medicine and methods to promote career advancement and equality.
Past events have included discussions on effective dialogue between men and women and creating gender equity in academic medical institutions.
