GME Diversity Committee
Led by residents/fellows
About the GME Diversity Committee
Our goal is to create a medical community that is reflective of the community and the world that we serve. We believe that we can best achieve this goal by addressing systems of privilege including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and physical ability. Representation matters, period. Our mission and values align with the goals of Stanford Medicine.
Black Resident Spotlight
We aim to support and uplift our incredible community of Black Housestaff. Please enjoy a glimpse into their unique experiences here at Stanford. #RepresentationMatters #DiversityInMedicine #WhatADoctorLooksLike #StanfordMed
Every two weeks of our Black Spotlight Campaign, we will feature a different member of medical residency programs.

How have you been supported at Stanford?
What message do you have for Black applicants?
We provide a comprehensive list of all the diversity groups at the department, program, and administrative level. Our goal is to make transparent the diverse support systems on all levels at Stanford School of Medicine. Let us know if we're missing any groups!
We hold several events to foster unity and support for
- Prospective interviewing house staff- recruitments and socials
- Current house staff - social events, network with faculty
- Diversity Recruitment Receptions for residency/fellowship applicants
- Participate in MD/Resident Recruitment Steering Committee
- Medical Student and Resident Recruitment Steering Committee
- Attendance at Student National Medical Association (SNMA) and Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) annual conference
We encounter similar but also unique situations. Know that you are not alone, and we're here to help!
If you have questions about professional development or any situations, feel free to speak with a fellow committee member or faculty advisors.

This program is to connect medical students with residents through specialty centered socials in order for organic mentoring relationships to grow.
This is open to all medical students, but has a special focus on those students who are underrepresented in medicine.
These networking events will feature 3 specialties per event, and you will have the opportunity to rotate between specialties to meet residents and ask questions.
Our hope is that you meet residents you resonate with, and reach out to them after the event to continue your conversation and establish a mentee - mentor relationship.
If you're a housestaff wishing to participate as a mentor, please contact Audrey Verde, MD, PhD, Mentorship Programs Co-Chair.
