The Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) is an NIH-funded, university-wide interdisciplinary research center established to foster a multidisciplinary approach to basic, clinical, and translational research and research training with an emphasis on understanding the causal factors underlying nutrition and obesity-related health problems and the generation and evaluation of evidence on their consequences, prevention, and alleviation.
The Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORCs), supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), host an initiative to identify the barriers and challenges to success of scientists from URiA groups and to identify actionable strategies to overcome these challenges. The goal is to provide specific recommendations to improve equity and inclusion for the NORCs, NORC-associated institutional leadership, and scientific societies such as the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and The Obesity Society (TOS).

We are delighted to offer a series of virtual surgical rotations within the Department of Surgery at BIDMC, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School.
This experience was created to allow students to virtually rotate in the Department of Surgery, who may not otherwise have access to our program. Take this opportunity to gain exposure to the clinical and educational environment and culture of our general surgery residency.
Within this curriculum, you will be provided with an overview of our program, time with current trainees, and be given the opportunity to experience some of what we can offer in terms of didactics and mentorship with current faculty.
Priority will be given to applicants who are underrepresented in medicine and applying in the 2021 match. However, all who are interested are welcome to apply.
