In November INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine awarded Einstein a 2021 Health Professions Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award. The magazine is the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education. Einstein was one of 51 U.S. medical schools, health colleges, and universities selected for the honor.
Einstein’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts include an array of programs and initiatives. Here are a few:
- Einstein Enrichment Program. This helps high-achieving students in the 7th through 12th grades who have been historically underrepresented in the medical and scientific professions pursue careers in health, medicine, and science.
- Educational program objectives. Created by the office of medical education, this list of goals helps ensure that students are assessed on a range of skills specific to antibias and antiracism.
- DEI educational opportunities. The Montefiore Learning Network offers workshops for faculty and staff on antiracism, equity, and inclusion.
