“The physician workforce should reflect the patients we see. We need representation to help inspire Black children – letting them know that it is possible to be a doctor and build a career helping people navigate their health. To provide that inspiration at Northwestern Medicine, underrepresented minority residents and fellows have joined together through the STRIVE program to provide mentorship to students from similar backgrounds.”
