MEDA: Making a difference for underrepresented trainees and junior faculty

Mentorship to Enhance Diversity in Academia (MEDA) is a new program designed to foster and support the careers of trainees who belong to diverse groups. Sponsored by the Department of Medicine’s Office of Inclusion and Diversity, MEDA is open to all within the Washington University School of Medicine community interested in the shared goal of promoting an equitable and inclusive environment for underrepresented minorities in medicine.

MEDA’s innovative mentorship efforts are now underway; the program recently celebrated its kick-off with an inaugural symposium on May 12, 2022.
