2020-2021 Internal Medicine Residency Classes:
Diversity & Inclusion
Led by Sherri-Ann Burnett-Bowie, MD, MPH, the Department of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency Program works closely with the Mass General Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) to attract and advance the careers of under-represented in medicine (URiM) students, physicians and researchers, as well as to develop culturally competent physicians. We believe this mission is essential for providing our patients with the very best health care and for improving the health of the diverse communities we serve. The Residency Program and CDI have designed mentorship and career development programs for residents during their training at Mass General. The CDI also sponsors welcoming receptions and networking opportunities to enhance the work environment and build community. The CDI Resident and Fellow Committee (RFC) promotes the mentorship and development of URM residents and fellows at Mass General. The RFC sponsors opportunities to network, develop careers and become involved in the communities of Harvard and Boston.

Women in Medicine
The Mass General Internal Medicine Residency Program is dedicated to the advancement of female physicians-in-training and the development of future women leaders in medicine. Women play a key role in the leadership of the residency program starting with Katrina Armstrong, MD, who serves as the physician-in-chief for the Department of Medicine.|
The Women in Medicine Trainees Council (WIMTC) was created by the Department of Medicine and the Office of Women’s Careers to actively support the personal and professional development of women trainees at Mass General. The efforts of this council are focused on creating opportunities for mentorship and providing a formal space for the Mass General community to discuss important issues to women physicians such as work-life balance, gender equity and career development. Major events organized by the WIMTC in the last calendar year included negotiation workshops, mock interviews and dinner series on topics germane to women pursing academic medical careers. In addition, the WIMTC serves as a voice to advocate for gender equity in the academic medical setting in partnership with colleagues in other departments at Mass General.
Major Areas of Focus:
- Promoting gender balance and equity in residency and fellowship recruitment
- Empowering female trainees to mitigate gender bias
- Supporting female physician-scientists
- Facilitating female mentorship and career development
- Promoting opportunities to facilitate work/life balance and wellness
Over the past five decades, graduates of the Internal Medical Residency Program at Massachusetts General Hospital have led distinguished careers in medicine, science and society. This record of achievement is a testament to the remarkable quality of the training programs that foster a profound spirit of learning, scholarship and accomplishment. A majority of our program graduates enter post-graduate fellowship training programs but many enter medical practice following completion of the residency program. The James Jackson Society is the Department of Medicine's alumni organization and encompasses all current faculty, as well as current and former trainees affiliated with the Internal Medicine Residency Program.
