A Commitment to Diversity

ABRCMS 2014Einstein has a long history of successfully mentoring underrepresented minority students through both its Ph.D. and MD-Ph.D. programs.

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is committed to fostering a broadly diverse group of future scientists, reflective of the Bronx community in which the school is located. The Einstein Graduate Division recognizes the value in maintaining a training environment that includes individuals with diverse backgrounds and life experiences. Diversity provides new perspectives and creativity to the study of complex scientific problems. Einstein celebrates the diversity of the student body and their contributions to our understanding of human health and disease.

Einstein Resources for Diversity

  • Einstein Minority Scientist Association (EMSA)
  • Einstein Office of Diversity Enhancement 
  • Hispanic Center of Excellence 

  • In addition, Einstein Graduate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences is involved with a number initiatives for diversity which are aimed to increase will expand the diversity of the biomedical research and teaching workforce in the United States.

    Postbaccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP)

    PREP Diversity The NIH awards PREP grants to institutions with strong Ph.D. degree programs in the biomedical sciences.

    The goal of PREP at Einstein is to encourage individuals from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences and who have recently obtained their baccalaureate degrees to earn a Ph.D. degree in biomedically relevant sciences through well-designed academic enhancements and extensive research experiences
