The SCORE Program recognizes that Stanford Medicine’s ideal of true community engagement is unlikely to occur without a workforce that is diverse in many ways. This includes individuals who are underrepresented in medicine, socioeconomically, or educationally disadvantaged, and others whose backgrounds and experiences would diversify their clinical fields.
The Department of Pediatrics at Stanford School of Medicine is committed to recruiting and supporting prospective fellows who contribute to a diverse workforce within pediatric medical subspecialties, specifically physicians who identify as underrepresented in medicine based on factors such as race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, abilities, sexual orientation, and gender identity. This program is designed to foster a community of diverse learners and faculty and to provide residents the opportunity to explore fellowship opportunities within our pediatric medical subspecialities.
The Stanford Medicine LEAD Program is a 10-month longitudinal leadership program for residents and fellows across GME to develop leadership and scholarship skills in addressing issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI), to produce leaders in academic medicine dedicated to EDI, and to improve the culture of medicine.
