As an MCW graduate student, you will be part of a diverse, international community that is focused on training future scientists and health science leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to advance medical research and transform the future of health.

Participating in student outreach and undergraduate research programs at MCW is a great way for you to contribute to increasing the number of diverse students who share in your educational experience. Our leadership are active members on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the Graduate School, and are personally involved in the success of the Underrepresented Scholars in Biomedical Research (USBR) program.

Additionally, all MCW graduate level academic programs have been represented at conferences, graduate school and national fairs across the country. In fact, you will likely join faculty, students and staff that have attended key diversity fairs, including the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) and the Ronald E. McNair National Conference.
