Housestaff Emerging Academy of Leaders (HEAL) for Underrepresented Groups
Launched by UT Southwestern’s Office of Faculty Diversity & Development, HEAL is a networking and professional development program designed for all racial/ethnic Residents, Fellows, and supporting faculty that have been historically underrepresented in medicine, such as African-Americans, Hispanics, American Indian/Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders. HEAL also provides sessions based on gender (HEAL for Women) and historically unrecognized sexual orientations and their supporters (HEAL for LGBT and Allies).
