Exploring mentorship for students and physicians with disabilities

In Dec 2020 and Jan 2021, the Society for Physicians with Disabilities (SPD), the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC), and the Stanford Medical Students with Disabilities and Chronic Illness (MSDCI) held virtual meetings to explore mentorship for students and physicians with disabilities. 

This remains an ongoing project that is open to all students and physicians with disabilities. 

We currently plan to hold virtual meetings each month. During these meetings, participants are divided into small groups so they can discuss thoughts and share perspectives. Then, we come together as a large group to debrief. Over time, the meeting formats may change. We have not been formally pairing up mentors with mentees. 

If you would like to learn more and participate in future meetings, be sure to join our organization so that you will receive information about our upcoming meetings.
