Teaching and Tomorrow URiM Program 2022

Teaching and Tomorrow URIM Scholarship Program 2022
The Pediatric GI Teaching and Tomorrow Program of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) strives to attract stellar residents to consider subspecialty training in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. All participants in Teaching and Tomorrow attend 3 tailored career panel discussions/sessions in addition to a very popular social networking reception, where they are invited as a group to meet with current fellows, as well as program director representatives from most GI fellowship programs in North America. Through these tailored and one-on-one meetings, we share our enthusiasm and guidance for careers in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.

NASPGHAN is also committed to being as diverse, equitable and inclusive a society as possible and has recognized the power of the Teaching and Tomorrow Program to bring promising pediatric residents of all races, ethnicities, genders, and social backgrounds from all over North America to our NASPGHAN Annual Meeting to see first-hand the cutting edge basic and clinical science of our subspecialty.

This year, we are enthusiastically expanding the Teaching and Tomorrow Program to provide 10 scholarships to interested 1st and 2nd year pediatric residents and 4th year medical students who self-identify as Underrepresented in Medicine (URIM). In addition to networking with other participants while attending the program’s scheduled sessions, scholarship awardees will be matched with a NASPGHAN fellow and/or attending physician (often themselves a Teaching and Tomorrow Program alumnus) who will serve as an additional professional contact and NASPGHAN ambassador.
