The mission of Mentoring in Medicine and Science, Inc. is to increase the presence of underrepresented healthcare professionals through mentorship, career exposure and leadership development.
Mentoring in Medicine (MIM), Inc. was founded in 2006 in New York by three physicians and an educator. It has since expanded to the San Francisco Bay Area with plans for continued growth to other major urban centers in the coming years. Recognizing the struggles they endured pursuing careers as professionals, the founders wanted to create a strong support network for underrepresented students. The founders could readily identify with the obstacles students face when pursuing professional careers. The most important factor they remembered was the key role mentors played in helping them reach their goals. With a focus on mentorship, MIM was born.
MIMS participants have the opportunity to obtain clinical experiences in the ACMC – Highland Emergency Department, shadow mentors in patient care settings, interact with residents and staff, and forge connections with leaders in the health care setting.
