One way this is done is by bridging the research and scholarship gap by providing targeted funding opportunities for pilot studies, as well as community, and nationally funded grants. Additionally, early career faculty are encouraged to participate in career development programs to include mentorship and grant writing workshops to aid in career advancement. Another important goal of the division is in cultivating a mentorship network of both personal and professional mentors for those URiM as this has been shown to increase scholarly productivity and career satisfaction. Lastly, our Department of Medicine has supported URiM faculty by creating leadership opportunities, for example our very own Dr. Francesca Duncan serves as Co-Chair of Equity and Inclusion in the Department of Medicine.
