Community Building

Throughout the year, we host a number of networking and social events to help build connections between URM medical students, trainees, and faculty within Boston Medical Center/Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, as well as with neighboring academic medical institutions. The events create opportunities for mentorship, research, and career development.


URM trainees and faculty have the opportunity to serve as ambassadors of Boston Medical Center and Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine at regional/national medical conferences, and at targeted medical schools to engage and advise the next generation of physicians.
