The goal of the social aspect of MHAMA is enhance the experience of minority residents by allowing them to network across subspecialties. The hope is to develop camaraderie and support through a shared experience as minority housestaff here at Vanderbilt. It will also allow a forum of expression outside of the professional environment to help with personal balance and overall well being.
Social events take place throughout the year. If you are a resident or fellow of an underrepresented minority and identify yourself as such, you will be added to the MHAMA listserv in order to be notified of meetings and social events.
