Talk Title: “Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM): investigating the factors contributing to the statistics”

Bio: Jigyasa Sharma is a third-year medical student. Originally from Denver, Colorado but have been around the Bay Area since coming to undergrad at UC Berkeley. There, she developed an interest in education that she continued exploring in medical school. One topic she is interested in is investigating different types of mentorship in medicine and how the impacts of these relationships manifest over time.

Each week, S-SPIRE hosts an in-person Work-In-Progress session (WIP) for faculty members and trainees to present their research and receive feedback on projects in every phase of development—from drafting specific aims pages, to parsing grant review committee comments, to abstracts/papers/methods in preparation.
