For Graduate Students and Post Doctoral Researchers

Diversity is a critical part of the Carver College of Medicine's (CCOM) research, education and clinical care goals. A diverse student body, Postdoctoral trainees, faculty, staff and patient population help provide a richer education experience for all and a more well-rounded research enterprise. The Office of Health Parity works closely with administrative offices, student groups, and community partners to foster an environment where all members of the CCOM community feel welcome.

The Office of Health Parity is available to support all graduate students and Post-Doc trainees through:

  • Welcome and community-building events
  • Mentoring programs 
  • Sponsor student organizations’ programs and events
  • Career coaching and professional development activities
  • Diversity and inclusion educational programs
