Diversity in the Biomedical Workforce

Promoting diversity and achieving inclusion throughout the research workforce is key to our ability to lead in scientific discovery and innovation. We are committed to building participation and work to recruit, retain, and train highly talented scientists from all backgrounds and at all career levels.

Our innovations to enhance diversity and inclusion include programs like GW-SPARC, METEOR, Internal Medicine Diversity Network, attendance and hosting Building the Next Generation of Academic Physicians (BN-GAP), efforts in Faculty Affairs, and participation in the National Hispanic Medical Association, Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), Student National Medical Association (SNMA) and more!
