Diversity in Medicine Conference
The aim of this meeting is to unite students and faculty from across North America to further a dialogue about increasing diversity within the field of medicine and foster collaboration between individuals involved in initiatives in this sphere. The conference events will include keynote speakers, panels, posters and oral presentations, interactive workshops, networking and social events.
The Diversity in Medicine Conference is hosted by the Doctors of Tomorrow Program at the University of Michigan Medical School. The planning committee of the conference welcomes abstract submissions on primary research projects or innovative programs that address the need to increase diversity among health care providers. Submissions for poster and oral presentations will be accepted. Please send all inquiries about the conference to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Students visit the local organization and present their proposed solutions at a formal symposium. Our community partners for this project have included:
