We are proud to announce that we are taking applications to participate in the innovative LEAD (Leadership Education in Advancing Diversity) Program, starting in August 2018. The LEAD program is looking for educational mentors (faculty, coordinators, educational administrators) who are passionate about diversity and inclusion. The vision of LEAD is to educate and empower the next generation of medical leaders to carry forward the mission of diversity and inclusion.
The program is a 10-month longitudinal program that provides residents and fellows with leadership training and mentorship in creating scholarly works around diversity and inclusion topics.
- It consists of monthly, 2-hour Wednesday evening sessions from 6-8pm.
- The first hour is devoted to interactive discussion-based lectures led by leaders in and outside of the Stanford community.
- The second hour is spent working in mentored, small groups on developing workshop presentations, culminating in the annual Diversity and Inclusion Forum to showcase the scholarly works completed.
- The expectation is that participants will attend a minimum of 7 of the 9 sessions.
We are now excited to expand the LEAD program within the Stanford School of Medicine: Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, OB/GYN, Psychiatry, Surgery, and Anesthesia.
