Minority House Staff Committee

The Minority Housestaff Committee was established in 1995 in an effort to increase the number of residents who are traditionally underrepresented in internal medicine. The MHC is comprised of members of our house staff and dedicated faculty advisors. MHC activities include:

  • Assisting with residency recruitment efforts
  • Providing mentorship and working with the local Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) and Student National Medical Association (SNMA) chapters
  • Promoting health equity for all patients through resident initiated research and outreach
  • Promoting professional, development and social networking activities
