We are happy to announce that the student survey is finally complete and ready for students to fill out. This is intended for all students interested in research that fit the criteria of underserved or underrepresented as defined by the OHEDI and the by the AAMC. Additionally, below you can find the OHEDI definition of what it means to be underserved or underrepresented. You will likely not hear back by January at the earliest (but could be later), however, it still gets your foot in the door for next semester research opportunities! If you are unsure if you fit the criteria that are listed below, please have them email me. Please DO NOT have them contact me via my phone number or email me for any other questions. If you need any additional information from me please let me know. Thank you for your time and help!
Definition of Underserved and Underrepresented:
According to the AAMC, "Underrepresented in medicine means those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population." The OHEDI's takes this definition and tries to make it as broad and inclusive as possible. Thus, any student that self identifies as underserved or underrepresented based on race, religion, sexual orientation or is female, a member of a minority group or identifies as a member of the LGBTQ community, a person of color, is an immigrant, a refugee, first in the family to go to college, and of low socioeconomic status qualifies for our services.
