In June, a group of underrepresented minority residents (URM) from Boston Medical Center (BMC), networked at the penthouse of the Girard Building, located near the hospital. They mingled, exchanged ideas and got to know each other better in a relaxed atmosphere over food and drinks.

The event was sponsored by BUSM’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs and BMC’s office of Minority Physician Recruitment, both dedicated to the recruitment and retention of a diverse group of students, residents and faculty.
