MHAMA at Vanderbilt

 

Mission

The Minority Housestaff for Academic and Medical Advancement (MHAMA) is an organization comprised of Vanderbilt house staff and advisors who are committed to creating opportunities for the advancement of  underrepresented house staff by providing opportunities for mentorship, networking and professional development. We are also committed to increasing the presence of underrepresented faculty and house staff by being actively involved in the recruitment process and by helping to create an environment that promotes retention and satisfaction of our current minority faculty and house staff. As we work to increase the the strength and numbers of our minority staff, we also are committed to giving back to the community through community service events and sponsorship of lectures which promote increased awareness of minority health issues.
