Our residents have the opportunity to participate in leadership development throughout their residency training.

Our residents have the opportunity to participate in leadership development throughout their residency training. The following programs are specific pathways of formal scholarship that our residents have the ability to participate in through The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University:

The Brown Residency International/Global Health Training (BRIGHT) Pathway is a two-year scholarly program designed to train residents across multiple specialties in global healthcare locally and abroad. Participants are paired with individual faculty mentors and identify and complete a global health scholarly project. Noon conference lectures and quarterly evening meetings allow networking among scholars. Residents in Obstetrics and Gynecology generally elect to participate in the BRIGHT pathway during their PGY2/3 or PGY3/4 years.

Brown Advocates for Social Change and Equity (BASCE) is a Fellowship offered through the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (ODMA) at the medical school. BASCE Fellows are selected to participate in a yearlong program aimed at developing healthcare leaders who will be leaders in engaging peers in dialogue around issues of racism, cultural diversity, inclusion, social justice and health equity. The program, open to medical students, residents, fellows, attendings, and allied health professionals, encourages vertical and horizontal mentorship and learning in a non-hierarchical manner with current and past BASCE cohorts. Founded in 2017, BASCE encourages deepening of anti-racism work through foundational understandings of theories including Critical Race Theory, Public Health Critical Race Praxis, Camara Jones’ three levels of racism, DisCrit, and Critical Whiteness Studies. BASCE Fellows are trained to facilitate sessions and engage in critical anti-racism and anti-oppression work within their institution. Fellows are provided access to up to $500 to develop and carry out a leadership project. For more information please email [email protected].

Residents are now able to participate in Brown’s Program in Education Faculty Development. The school of medicine holds seminars focused on Medical Education that traditionally have been held in the evening at the medical school campus, ~8 per year. Everything has now been transitioned to Zoom which makes them easier to get to! If you participate in 5 of these sessions over a 3 year time period, you can earn a Certificate of Participation. This is a great opportunity to fine tune your education skills and become more involved in Med Ed.
