Michigan Faculty and Medical Student (M-FAMS)

The M-FAMS Partnership is a collaboration between OHEI and the Student Diversity Council, bringing like-minded medical students and faculty together in a guided mentorship program. The goal of the program is to pair interested medical students with an individual faculty member who will serve as a mentor for any diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and identity related interests, efforts and issues during their time here at Michigan Medicine. Mentors and mentees will meet at least once quarterly. In addition, OHEI will host a larger annual event to celebrate all members of the M-FAMS Partnership.
