Medical Opportunities for Students and Aspiring Inclusive Clinicians (MOSAIC)

Medical Opportunities for Students and Aspiring Inclusive Clinicians (MOSAIC)

NYC Health + Hospitals is the nation’s largest public hospital system, serving over one million low income and vulnerable New Yorkers a year. Our System is committed to increasing our physician workforce diversity such that it better reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.

Launched in 2021, MOSAIC is a suite of interventions that help students and trainees who are under-represented in medicine (URIM) succeed in medical school and beyond. The MOSAIC initiative was named after David Dinkins, the first Black Mayor of NYC, who said “New York is not a melting pot,” Dinkins writes, “but a gorgeous mosaic… of race and religious faith, of national origin and sexual orientation.”

Our goals are to:

  • Create a pool of competitive minority candidates going into medicine
  • Build necessary skills and training, beginning early
  • Recruit these students into medical school and beyond
  • Expand NYC Health + Hospitals’ diverse physician workforce

The programs include the below, and are expected to expand over the coming years:
