New URM faculty welcome meeting

SKMC is committed to the career development of all faculty at Jefferson but recognize that those from a racial or ethnic group that is underrepresented in medicine, a woman in a specialty in which women are underrepresented and/or those who self-identify as lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, or questioning sexual identity may have unique concerns such as reducing isolation or finding a mentor with a similar background. Dr. Karen Novielli, Vice Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development, along with Dr. Bernie Lopez, Associate Dean for Diversity and Community Engagement, meet individually with new faculty from these groups.

Support for Minority and Women Faculty Development

The SKMC Office of Faculty Affairs and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives provide financial support for faculty underrepresented in medicine (including underrepresented minorities, LGBT and women in certain medical specialties) to attend faculty development conferences.
