URM Resources

The Office of Minority Physician Recruitment (OMPR) is committed to the recruitment, engagement and advancement of underrepresented minority (URM) physicians within our residency and fellowship ranks. Through partnerships with our residency and fellowship programs, clinical departments, and administrative offices we aim to provide a diverse physician staff in order to enhance the quality of care for the patients we serve. We partner with training programs, clinical departments, and administrative offices to attract, recruit, and retain talented Under Represented Minorities (URM) within the residency and fellowship ranks for Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine.

Mentoring & Networking

These events create opportunities to connect with peers, as well as develop mentors and advisors that can support and guide trainees throughout their career.

Minority Physician Recruitment Steering Committee

This committee is comprised of underrepresented minority residents/fellows, , faculty, and hospital administrators from Boston Medical Center/Boston University School of Medicine who are committed to increasing the representation of under-represented minority trainees and faculty, as well as create an environment that promotes retention, growth,  and satisfaction among our current minority physician staff.

Under-Represented Racial & Ethnic Group Program

The Under-represented racial and ethnic groups in medicine (URG) Leadership Program is a longitudinal leadership and career development program for under-represented racial and ethnic groups in medicine (URG). The program uses self-assessment and reflection, experiential learning, and peer and senior mentorship. The goals are to provide faculty with the tools necessary to navigate a successful career in academic medicine, and to foster leadership skills that enable participants to positively affect change in their current and future roles. Participants meet monthly on Thursdays from 4:30 – 6pm from October to June.
