Our mission is to demonstrate the excellence put forth by black male physicians and rising students in the medical field, as a means to increase the recruitment of black males in medicine. We also aim to provide a secure platform for minority males to openly discuss the difficult topics we face as minorities in medicine.
The Forum: Let's Start The Conversation
We're always browsing the web to discuss the latest news and controversial issues and how they affect our community. Here you’ll find stimulating discussions and a safe place for questions and commentary as means to connect the black men in the medical community across the country.
The Black Men In Medicine forum was created to provide a secure space where forum participants can easily share tips and knowledge about the field. Check out the latest posts to see what's hot on the wards or sign in today and start a discussion yourself.
COVID-19 and Black People
Dr. Oliver Brooks, President of the National Medical Association, lets the community know black people suffer more from adverse medical conditions, with poorer outcomes. COVID-19, the disease process caused by infection from the pandemic virus SARS-CoV-2 will demonstrate its accuracy without proper precaution.
The implications of this body of scientific study—both decades old and newly emerging—are enormous. Contrary to the common belief that the nation’s progress with gender and racial equity has largely confined biases today to a small group of aberrational actors, researchers have shown that implicit biases are widespread and operate largely beneath the radar of human consciousness.
Support The BMIM Initiative
1. Through power in numbers BMIM has aspirations to fund a scholarship for a young black male minority interested in pursuing medicine. The funds for this scholarship would go toward tools to help him apply to medical school: MCAT registration, MCAT prep course and resources, application fees and travel expenses for up to three medical schools, as a means to increase recruitment in the field of medicine.
2. Connect mentors and mentees through in person and virtual mentorship at all levels of the medical path
3. Facilitate empowering discussions amongst physicians and students at every level along the medical journey
4. Highlight the excellent work of the black males in this community, we are more than just athletes
