The Northwestern MSTP Diverse Perspectives of Physcian Scientists (DPPS) is a forum that organizes discussions among scientists, physician-scientists, and current program trainees. The group is focused on facilitating discussions on diversity within science and medicine with the goal of providing current students with exposure to the plethora of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences of current professionals. Several renowned scientists and physician-scientists have presented annually to our students since 2015 on various topics, including identifying a scientific mission and career trajectory, advice on ways to address health disparities, and promoting more inclusion of underrepresented groups in academic leadership.
