Office of Diversity Enhancement Sharing News and Opportunities of Interest

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) began to accept applications for the 2021-2022 MRSP class on October 1, 2020, and the deadline for completed applications is 5pm EST, on January 8, 2021.
The NIH MRSP is a unique, year-long residential research training program which seeks to attract talented, research-oriented medical, dental, and veterinary students to the NIH intramural campus in Bethesda, MD. MRSP is targeted to 2nd, 3rd or 4th students.
MRSP is not simply a research program but rather a career development program for students heading toward careers in biomedical research.  It is centered on a robust investigation experience: during the year, students select and engage in a mentored basic, clinical, or translational research project with an experienced research mentor that matches their professional interests, research focus, and career goals. While the focus is on a robust research experience, MRSP also provides students with dedicated curriculum of academic activities featuring lectures by world-renowned scientists, clinical teaching rounds featuring patients from the NIH Clinical Center, a Journal Club addressing major issues in clinical research, as well as workshops in professional development such as work-life balance, CV writing, and interviewing skills.
We will be conducting an informational webinar on Thursday, November 12th at 1PM EST.  More information about the virtual webinar will be sent to you this month and we look forward to you and your students’ participation.
If you have any questions or would like additional information about the MRSP, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity Program

Now accepting applications for the 2021

Application deadline is November 20, 2020

The Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity program is designed to bring together the diverse industries, professions, and leaders that influence health and well-being. There are no specific educational requirements or ‘preferred’ professions – we are a community united by values. The shared attributes and values of the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity include action/solutions orientation, equity, inclusivity, courage, humility, diversity, and creativity. If you share these values, we encourage you to apply! 

Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity is one of seven global, interconnected Atlantic Fellows programs. While each of the seven Atlantic Fellows programs is distinct and grounded in its local context, they share a common purpose of advancing fairer, healthier, more inclusive societies. 

Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity is a one-year fellowship opportunity offered by the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity designed for early to mid-career leaders who are currently engaged in health sector work including but not limited to, academia, government, healthcare delivery, the arts, equitable housing, business, research, and media. The program will select twenty fellows.

The aim of the fellowship is to develop leaders who understand the foundations of health inequity and have the knowledge, skills, and courage to build more equitable health systems and organizations.

Emergency Medicine Writing Fellowship
It should not be considered bold for an academic health center to declare that black lives matter. But it is.

Your ZIP code or the color of your skin also should not determine your life expectancy, or the kind of health care you are able to access.

But, as medical professionals, you and I can see that
the evidence is clear: racial minorities do suffer from disparities in health outcomes due to the impact of social determinants of health, such as poverty, food insecurity, unstable housing, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of quality education and challenges in access to health care.

That is why The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has taken the stance that
racism itself is a social determinant of health.

And it is why, in addition to our decades of community efforts to improve social determinants of health in vulnerable neighborhoods, we have initiated an Anti-Racism Action Plan that is so much more than words on a page. Ohio State faculty and staff have long been committed to eliminating racism, but our new approach organizes their passion into measurable action.

Here's how:
