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.

The first Center event of the 2021-22 academic year is our LIDEReS program: The Latina/o/x Identity, Development, Empowerment, and Resources Seminar. This two-day seminar brings together faculty (including residents with signed contracts for faculty positions and fellows) and physician advisors from across the United States and provides 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.

This year’s LIDEReS session will take place virtually on July 30 and 31, 2021. Events on each day will occur from 8:00am to 4:45pm Pacific Time. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits will be provided.
