Application Deadline: May 1, 2023
This award supports the academic pursuits of historically marginalized individuals with disproportionately low representation in pediatric dermatology. The Association of American Medical College (AAMC) describes “underrepresented in medicine” as “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population,” defined as Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. To promote greater inclusivity in our selection process, we will consider additional elements of diversity to include LGBTQIA+ identification, physical or mental impairment, immigration status, socio-economic background, or disadvantaged experiences. Additionally, this year, we will expand selection to include pediatric residents with an interest in pursuing formal training in dermatology and a career in pediatric dermatology.
Upon Completion of Mentorship Experience
Awardees must submit a one-page report no later than one month after completing their mentorship experience to firstname.lastname@example.org.
