“We want to make sure that the student who comes into our door, as well as the trainee, resident, fellow or the faculty member - finds a place, a home, where they can grow and develop their career. We are actually working synergistically with their departments to make sure that they are provided with the greatest experience possible, helping them become the leaders of tomorrow.” CDI Executive Director, Elena Olson reveals how the CDI is helping to build the leaders of tomorrow.
“At Mass General I have opportunities to pursue all of the professional roles that are important to me – pediatrician, academic administrator and researcher – in ways that fulfill my passion for improving the care of underserved populations. The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) has been intricately involved in connecting me with opportunities and supporting my success.”
“I am a first generation U.S. citizen. I went to Harvard for undergrad and to the University of Pittsburgh School for medical training. I wanted to be in Boston or New York City for my residency, and when I visited Mass General, I just knew that it was the place for me. I had this gut reaction – a feeling of connection to the people here – that started when I walked through the doors. I have stayed because of the authenticity; the staff’s love and care for patients and genuine support for each other.”
“I was born in Liberia, grew up in North Carolina, and attended Harvard College and Harvard Medical School. My Harvard experiences made Mass General a top candidate when I was considering where to do my residency. Its prestige and reputation were immediately appealing, but my experience at Mass General has been everything I wanted and more.”
“I did not have what most would consider the typical path to Harvard Medical School and Mass General. I was born in Cuba and lived there until age 13 when my family moved to Miami. I did not speak English when I first moved to the United States and my parents did not have the financial resources to pay for private schools. I worked two jobs while I was a student at University of Miami, one of which was at a research lab. It made me realize that I really wanted to apply the science I was learning, and volunteering at a couple of hospitals helped me to be sure that medical school was the right path for me.”
