The MGH Department of Medicine Residency Program works closely with the MGH Multicultural Affairs Office (MAO) to promote the recruitment, retention, and advancement of the careers of URM (under-represented in medicine) students, physicians and researchers, as well as to develop culturally competent physicians. We believe this mission is crucial to delivering the very best health care for our patients, and to improve the health of the diverse communities we serve at MGH. The Residency Program and MAO have designed mentorship and career development programs for residents during their training at MGH. The MAO also sponsors welcoming receptions and networking opportunities to enhance the work environment and help build a sense of community. The Organization of Minority Residents and Fellows (OMRF) also plays a crucial role in mentorship and development of URM residents and fellows at MGH. OMRF offers opportunities to network, enhance career development, and become involved in the communities of Harvard and Boston.
