Three Pediatrics faculty named ADVANCE-UP Scholars

Friday, January 15, 2021

Three faculty from the Department of Pediatrics have been named by the School of Medicine Office for Faculty as 2021 ADVANCE-UP Scholars.

ADVANCE-UP (Academic DeVelopment Advocacy Networking, Coaching and Education for Underrepresented Populations) is a year-long program that provides in-depth opportunities for academic development, mentoring, and networking for faculty from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds. The program aims to address the challenges that underrepresented faculty encounter in academic medical centers and ultimately seeks to create a network of scholars that will enhance the sense of community among underrepresented faculty, foster timely promotion, and increase representation in leadership positions. 

Congratulations to our 2021 ADVANCE-UP Scholars!
