Meet Your DE&I Task Force Members
CMSS Joint Capstone framework will follow two strategic priority areas that
have been deemed critical for collective advancement of our medical societies’
diversity, equity, and inclusion strategic goals. These strategic focus areas
Project 1: Identifying and
collectively implementing cross-society strategies to increase the pool of
diverse applicants to medical school (e.g., support for precollege and
college research/shadowing programs), reduce barriers to entry (e.g.,
advocate for holistic review), and increase diversity of specialty
2: Identifying and collectively implementing best practices by specialty
societies to increase the visibility and availability of effective
mentorship, coaching and sponsorship programs for those historically
underrepresented in medicine.
These two projects will focus on identifying strategic opportunities for specialty societies to collectively intervene to support, advance, and advocate for those who are underrepresented in medicine at key points along the pathway of medical education and practice (pre-college, medical school, residency training, in practice, and in specialty societies).
Each Project will have an Advisory Committee, consisting of no more than 12 individuals and will NOT include representation from each organization. SNMMI nominated Marques Bradshaw, MD to serve on this elite Advisory Committee. We are pleased to report that Dr. Bradshaw was officially appointed to the Committee!
Advisory Committee’s responsibilities will include:
