Dean's Postdoctoral Fellowhsip

The Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership (DCP) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) was established to promote the increased recruitment, retention and advancement of diverse faculty, particularly underrepresented minority (URM) faculty, at HMS and to oversee all diversity and inclusion activities involving HMS faculty, trainees, students and staff. 

DCP’s Minority Faculty Development Program sponsors programs for the development of HMS faculty, with an emphasis on mentoring and leadership, as well as programs that are designed to reach out to the pre-college and college populations with the goal of bringing outstanding, URM students into the pipeline.

DCP’s research and evaluation arm, Converge: Building Inclusion in the Sciences through Research, offers research and technical assistance that lead to national, regional and local strategies that support workforce diversity and inclusion in the biomedical sciences. The Office also acts as a central resource for monitoring faculty development and diversity efforts of the Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center through its Program for Faculty Development and Diversity.  In partnership with the Biomedical Science Careers Program, DCP offers programs aimed at providing the encouragement, support and guidance needed for the successful pursuit of careers in biomedical sciences.  The Harvard Medical School Center of Excellence in Minority Health and Health Disparities maintains and builds upon existing educational programs that seek to enhance the academic performance of URM students, strengthens efforts to support the cultural competency preparedness of faculty, trainees, and students, and expands current models for URM faculty development and student/faculty research focusing on issues of minority health and health disparities.
