Career & Professional Development

The Career & Professional Development team supports trainees throughout their career exploration and professional development journey via seminars, workshops, and panels.

We ensure our community can develop the necessary skills to enhance their current training outcomes and smoothly transition into their chosen career paths.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The DEI team provides opportunities to learn and develop in ways that are in keeping with the Medical School's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

We plan monthly awareness campaigns, workshops and cultural social events to promote diversity and advance equity and inclusion.

Counseling & Well-Being

The Counseling & Well-Being team supports and advocates for the personal well-being of our trainees.

Recognizing the many dimensions of wellness, our team offers 1-on-1 counseling sessions and workshops on personal, emotional, family and academic/workplace issues.

Student Organizations

Student organizations also play an important role in connecting trainees with peers and building community.
