In 1994 The Institute of Medicine issued a statement that strongly endorsed diversity in the medical profession as a strategy to improve public health. The rationale behind this endorsement was diverse backgrounds and experiences facilitate scientific innovation and encourage the development of comprehensive programs that consider how complex interactions of gender, race and socioeconomics affect public health. The importance of faculty and student diversity was recognized by the founders of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine more than fifty years ago. Since its inception in 1953, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine has always supported a non-discrimination policy in regard to race, religion, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, veteran or disabled status, marital status, sexual orientation, or citizen status. With these tenets paramount the Albert Einstein College of Medicine was built on a foundation of inclusion and academic excellence that fully embraced faculty and student body diversity.

Guided by Einstein’s long standing mission for scientific excellence through faculty diversity and community inclusion, the Office of the Dean for Diversity Mentoring will lead the development of programs focused on recruitment, retention, mentoring, and career advancement of diverse groups of underrepresented faculty in academic medicine. 

The Office of the Dean for Diversity Mentoring seeks to provide support to individuals with disabilities and underrepresented and diverse groups with clinical and basic science faculty appointments, research associates, post doctoral research fellows, and graduate and medical scientist training program trainees.

And I am here to be your advocate for obtaining information that can help you develop a plan to achieve your career goals."
