Minority Faculty Career Development Award

 Established in 1996, the BWH Minority Faculty Career Development Award (MFCDA) is granted annually to one early-career underrepresented in medicine (URM) academician.  It is designed to assist in supporting their work and career progression at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and at Harvard Medical School. The MFCDA is a mentored career development award of $100,000 which is paid out over a 5-year period and is not renewable.  This award is an important part of BWH’s efforts to increase the representation of URM physicians and scientists in the fellowship programs and faculty positions at BWH.
