How did this program begin?
UCSF Urology residents were inspired by the #BlackLivesMatter movement and wanted to demonstrate our commitment to fighting structural racism. Like many, we have been outraged and angered by the killing of Black men and women: most recently George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, among countless others. Our response is to create a mentorship program that will contribute to increasing the number of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous Urologists in the U.S.
What if I don’t feel like I am receiving adequate mentorship?
In the unfortunate case where a mentor is unable to follow through with their responsibilities, the medical student can email the mentorship coordinator, Karen Tabayoyong at [email protected] to request that a new resident to be assigned to them.
Who can I contact with questions about the program?
