The I CAN PERSIST (ICP) STEM Initiative is a culturally relevant program designed to advance STEM persistence among undergraduate and graduate women from African American/Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and Asian ethnic communities enrolled in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs at the University of Massachusetts-Boston. ICP uses a holistic multigenerational mentorship framework to reaffirm students’ belonging to STEM and foster renewed commitment to careers in STEM fields.

Since 2017, ICP scholars have had a stellar track record of securing competitive jobs and internships in STEM, successfully accomplished academic milestones (e.g., qualifying exams, dissertation proposals, etc), and above all else, have described feeling supported, celebrated, and affirmed by an oasis of Women of Color in STEM.

We hope that you are as excited as we are about the prospects of standing in solidarity with Women of Color who have embarked on a similar journey in STEM while also gaining invaluable career and educational resources.

To hear more about ICP, feel free to watch the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 scholars describe their experience in ICP, view our flyer and brochure, check out our Instagram or Facebook pages, or browse our website.

Comments Off on Pathways to Inclusive Health Care (PIHC) Program at UMass Medical School- Gap Year Program

Pathways to Inclusive Health Care (PIHC) Program at UMass Medical School- Gap Year Program

UMass Medical School Post-Baccalaureate- Gap Year Opportunity for Future Health Care Professionals

 Pathways to Inclusive Health Care Program

 Health disparities and an inadequately trained health care workforce prevent the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities into society. The unprecedented rate of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD) aging into adult services makes the training of health professionals an immediate and urgent need. Modeled after Teach for America, the Pathways to Inclusive Health Care (PIHC) program creates a pipeline of health care professionals who will be motivated and equipped to provide quality healthcare to this population.

The PIHC program is housed at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center at UMass Medical School, a pioneer in IDD-related research, training, and service for fifty years. Targeting pre-medical, dental, nurse practitioner, and other pre-health professions students, recent college graduates (called Scholars) participate in nine-month-long program that features the following elements:

• Scholars work as paraprofessionals 4 days/week with individuals with ASD/IDD in practicum sites such as day habilitation and community-based day support programs

• Scholars attend weekly seminars, take coursework through the Shriver Center’s Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program, and visit community-based programs that serve people with IDD and ASD.

• Scholars receive mentoring on their medical or graduate school application efforts.

• A stipend of $15,000 is provided.

• Scholars will receive a certificate in Disability Studies from the University of Massachusetts Medical School upon completion of the program.

 The 2021-2022 PIHC program begins September, 2021

 Those interested are encouraged to submit their application by May 14th, 2021. Please note the application period may close before the May deadline if program capacity has been met.

 Applicants must have earned a bachelor’s degree by August 1, 2021

 Application materials may be found at https://shriver.umassmed.edu/programs/pihc/.

Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) Pre-Dental Mentorship Program- Deadline to Apply: March 5th

The Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) Pre-Dental Mentorship Program invites you to participate as a mentee for the Spring ’21 (February – June) semester!

This Program, sponsored by the HSDM Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Mentorship Club, strives to provide college students interested in dentistry with the opportunity to connect with DMD students at HSDM. Mentoring can be an extremely rewarding experience for all parties involved and serves as an effective way to increase diversity and promote the inclusion of underrepresented students in oral health.

The Program provides mentorship to candidates from groups underrepresented in medicine as defined by the AAMC, including, but not limited to Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, and American Indian/Alaska Native, as well as those from other marginalized groups (e.g., LGBTQ+, first-generation college student). These one-on-one mentoring partnerships would formally span a semester or academic year and could potentially result in lifelong relationships.

Please submit the following application if you are interested in participating as a mentee by March 5th: https://forms.gle/YMMt1kSbh51q2zUr7
