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.
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.
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
The annual Einstein Diversity Open House gives prospective students the opportunity to learn detailed information about applying to M.D., Ph.D. and M.D.-Ph.D. programs, speak with our students, faculty and administrators, learn more about the life of a student, and tour some of the educational, clinical and scientific facilities at Einstein. Each year this event is sponsored by the Office of Diversity Enhancement and the Graduate Division of Biomedical Sciences
The annual memorial lecture is sponsored by the Einstein Graduate Division of Biomedical Sciences and the Einstein Minority Scientist Association. Marie Daly, Ph.D. was the first African American woman in the United States to be awarded a Ph.D. in Chemistry. She received her degree from Columbia University and continued her groundbreaking research on health and the heart at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. As a teacher of Biochemistry at Einstein she was dedicated to increasing the number of minority students in medical schools and graduate science programs.
Each year, the Einstein Graduate Division recruits applicants from a wide range of culturally diverse backgrounds. This year we will attending various conferences and events across the nation. Einstein's PhD Program diversity recruitment will include visits to: The Society for Advancing Hispanics, Chicanos & Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) National Conference
