Progress Report

From the Summer 2017 edition of Vanderbilt Medicine Magazine

Formed in 2008, the Minority Housestaff for Academic and Medical Advancement (MHAMA) is an organization comprised of Vanderbilt house staff and advisers who are committed to creating opportunities for the advancement of underrepresented house staff by providing opportunities for mentorship, networking and professional development. MHAMA is 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 VUSM works to increase the strength and numbers of our minority staff, it also is committed to giving back to the community through community service events and sponsorship of lectures which promote increased awareness of minority health issues.
