Committee Description

The Medical Student and Resident Recruitment Steering Committee aims to bring together individuals and offices that conduct diverse recruitment for medical students and residents to discuss practices that can be shared and scaled and to work together to better streamline conference recruitment. The committee formed in Fall 2018 and has focused its efforts on connecting individuals attending the LMSA West and AMEC conferences, collecting diverse recruitment practices across Stanford Medicine, and determining the best ongoing funding structure for conferences targeted to underrepresented populations in medicine. Members on the committee represent the Office of Medical Student Affairs, the Graduate Medical Education Department, the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, the Office of Medical Student Admissions, the Center of Excellence in Diversity in Medical Education, the Department of Surgery, the Department of Pediatrics, the Department of Internal Medicine, and the Department of Emergency Medicine.
