This is the non-profit arm of Diverse Medicine Recruitment Center. The mission of DMI is to increase ethnic and socioeconomic diversity within the field of Medicine via mentoring and outreach. Diverse Medicine’s belief is that individuals from underrepresented ethnic groups as well as those from economically disadvantaged upbringings are capable of becoming highly effective clinicians and scientists if provided with a community of support and mentorship. In mentoring such students, Diverse Medicine promotes better health care for all.
This is a free online community where premedical students from diverse backgrounds can connect with medical school recruiters. The ultimate purpose is to provide recruitment opportunities for students. There are many qualified premeds who never get the chance to pursue their dream of being a medical doctor simply because they did not know that there was a medical school out there looking for a students just like them while at the same time, the medical school never knew the student existed. Diverse Medicine Recruitment Center solves this problem by providing 24/7 online recruitment not limited by time, money, or location.
