MD/GME Recruitment Steering Committee

The MD/GME Recruitment Steering Committee aims to bring together individuals and offices that conduct diverse recruitment for medical students and GME trainees to discuss practices that can be shared and scaled to work together to improve recruitment through conferences. The committee, formed in fall 2018, brings together individuals and offices that conduct diverse recruitment to discuss practices and collaborate to better streamline efforts, including attendance at LMSA, SNMA, and other minority medical conferences. Members on the committee represent the Office of Diversity in Medical Education, Office of Medical Student Affairs, the Department of Graduate Medical Education, the Office of Medical Student Admissions, the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, and clinical departments across Stanford Medicine.
