The Office of Diversity Enhancement oversees all diversity activities involving Einstein students. The office addresses the needs of under-represented minority medical students and provides a bridge to the faculty for mentoring and support. Einstein's focus on creating a diverse student body is a longstanding one, dating back to the establishment of the Martin Luther King, Jr. - Robert F. Kennedy Program for Special Studies in 1968.
Among the goals of the Office of Diversity Enhancement are:
- Support diversity in all areas of medical education;
- Provide critical pipeline programs that start in high school;
- Provide aggressive recruitment for qualified under-represented minority students;
- Provide academic counseling, mentorship and support for our students, residents, fellows and faculty; and
- Provide representation at national and regional academic organizations.
