Here is a semester update from the ODMA at the end of the Fall 2020 semester:
- Last summer, the ODMA ran a virtual residency fair that focused on recruiting candidates who are under-represented in medicine (UiM) for the residency programs. Several hundred individuals from across the country and at least a dozen Brown-residency programs participated.
- The ODMA recently held its first open house for UiM candidates applying to medical school. ODMA was extremely happy to see the level of engagement of those who attended. This is an effort to share diversity initiatives with pre-med students from other institutions. This is coupled with a new initiative, "Affinity Group Chats," that brings together some of our students (from the Affinity Groups) and UiM applicants who have just interviewed at the Medical School. It provides an opportunity for applicants to connect with current UiM students to learn about their experiences here at The Warren Alpert Medical School.
