Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) Faculty Development Award Program. 

The purpose of this program is to increase opportunities for faculty who are underrepresented in medicine, and who are committed to diversity, inclusion and equity, to advance to senior positions in academic medicine and leadership at MGH. The two awards categories include: The Physician/Scientist Development Award (PSDA) and the Clinician/Teacher Development Award (CTDA). Each award provides $120,000 over four years and is designed for MGH-appointed faculty pursuing different career goals.
