The LIDEReS Program

Thank you for your interest in the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) and our inaugural National Center for LMSA Leadership & Advancement. This initiative aims to provide physicians, faculty members, staff, and healthcare professionals with resources for their continual development as leaders in medicine.

In particular, we are delighted to bring back our LIDEReS program for the second time in the 2021-22 academic year: The LHS+ Identity, Development, Empowerment, and Resources Seminar. This three-day seminar brings together faculty members, physicians, senior staff members, and advisors from across the United States, providing participants with inspirational and practical guidance and tools for pursuing career advancement in academic medicine. The seminar will help participants develop key professional competencies that build self-efficacy, communication skills, and leadership while expanding their network of colleagues, role models, advisors, and champions.
