Trainee Diversity & Inclusion Conference
November 2nd & 3rd, 2019
Saturday 7:30am-5:00pm & Reception 5:30pm-7:00pm | Sunday 10:00am-12:00pm
TDIC is sponsored by the UVA Housestaff Council for Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of Graduate Medical Education. This year’s conference theme is Advocacy in Action. The goal is to build on the groundwork laid in the inaugural 2018 event to further transform challenges faced by GME trainees and faculty, historically underrepresented in medicine, into actionable strategies for success. Our esteemed speakers will lead discussions and interactive workshops designed to develop concepts and skills that can help attendees address three specific advocacy domains; personal, professional, and our undeserved patients.
