T4D Mentors and guests continue to offer their insights and advice through its informative blog, Voices of Diversity. From success stories of students who have joined T4D on their own campus, to advice from advisors who have worked with T4D around the country, Voices of Diversity is another forum from which future physicians and dentists can be inspired through first-hand experiences of those who have been in their shoes.
The T4D YouTube Channel offers video highlights of past campus visits and video biographies of our inspiring team.
About Tour for Diversity in Medicine Conceived by former medical student leaders, Tour for Diversity in Medicine is a grassroots effort to educate, inspire, and cultivate future minority physicians and dentists. An unfortunate large portion of the targeted student population lacks adequate access to proper advising on their chosen career paths, sound mentoring by those in the field as they progress through their education, and geographic proximity to academic medical centers that might otherwise provide other enrichment opportunities. Using the experiences and advising of current minority physicians, dentists, and medical students, T4D seeks to address these disparities in preparation through prehealth enrichment activities that expose students to preparatory information that is both formative and motivating. Since its inaugural Tour in February 2012, T4D has reached more than 2700 students across 23 states with its unique programming.
