The Organization of Minority Residents and Fellows (OMRF) is an inter-departmental forum for URM trainees at MGH. The OMRF is led by residents and fellows who are elected by their peers, and plays a crucial role in the professional and personal development of URM residents and fellows. This organization assists with residency recruitment, and offers opportunities to socialize and network among peers, enhance career development and become involved in the larger Harvard and Boston communities.
