Office of Health Equity and Inclusion | Initiatives in Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

Pipeline programs

Our pipeline programs seek to encourage students from diverse backgrounds to consider career opportunities in pediatric medicine. Our programs for high school, college, and graduate students from underrepresented backgrounds expose students to the varied career opportunities in pediatrics to foster interest in health care.

Recruitment initiatives

Each year, with support from Boston Children’s Human Resources, our office sponsors residents in the Boston Combined Residency Program to attend national training and recruitment events. These events offer career development opportunities for medical students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine.
