The Centers of Excellence Consortium on Minority Faculty Development consists of NJMS, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Meharry Medical College, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, University of Texas Medical Branch and University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine.

The overall goal of the COE Consortium is to increase our collective capacity to attract, develop, and retain underrepresented minority physician and biomedical scientists for successful careers in academic medicine within a community of institutions committed to advancing diversity.

This partnership will:

  • establish external mentoring opportunities
  • provide access to new databases and patient populations for research purposes
  • foster peer networking and peer collaborations
