The Department of Medicine Diversity Council welcomed seven students for the 4th Year Clerkship in Internal Medicine last week. The clerkship spans both JHH and JHBMC and runs from September 26 through October 21. While at Johns Hopkins, the medical students participate in a clerkship in one of the DOM divisions, receive mentorship from the DOM Diversity Council, meet DOM leadership and interact with the residency programs. This year, the students are:
- Charles Odenigbo, Michigan State University, College of Human Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases
- Lonimi Adebowale, Howard University College of Medicine, Division of Cardiology
- Odolphe Augustin, Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, Division of Geriatric Medicine & Gerontology

Please say hello if you meet one of these fantastic students. These efforts are a part of the DOM diversity, equity and inclusion efforts focused on creating pathways to internal medicine for those underrepresented in medicine as defined by the AAMC.
