Dr. Yemane serves in numerous local and national roles related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), medical education, and mentorship, including Associate Program Director for the Pediatrics Residency and inaugural Assistant Dean of Diversity for GME within the Office of Diversity in Medical Education. Dr. Yemane's scholarship focuses on building and evaluating innovative diversity and inclusion programs and studying facilitators and interventions that support the recruitment, inclusion and retention of underrepresented in medicine (UIM) GME trainees in academic medicine. She is one of the founding co-directors for the Stanford Medicine Leadership Education in Advancing Diversity (LEAD) Program, created in 2017, which is a 10-month longitudinal leadership program for residents and fellows across GME to develop leadership and scholarship skills in addressing issues related to DEI, to produce leaders in academic medicine dedicated to DEI and to improve the culture of medicine. She is also the founding co-director of the Association of Pediatric Program Directors’ Advancing Inclusiveness in Medical Education Scholars (AIMS) Program, created in 2019, which is a national mentorship and professional development program for UIM pediatric residents interested in careers in pediatric medical education leadership.
My scholarship interests are focused on creating and evaluating diversity and inclusion programs to support UIM GME trainees and facilitators and interventions that support the recruitment, inclusion, and retention of UIM trainees.
