BWH's Commitment to Health Equity

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center for Community Health and Health Equity (CCHHE) is committed to advancing systems of care, research and community programs that elevate the health and well-being of people who live in our surrounding communities.

 

Priority communities include Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Mission Hill and Roxbury, due to their proximity to the hospital and the disproportionate burden of poverty, housing instability, and other social determinants of health. CCHHE approaches its work through a racial equity lens.

 

BWH runs two licensed community health centers in Jamaica Plain—Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center (SJPHC) and Brookside Community Health Center—where we provide high-quality, patient-centered health care services. Over 50% of SJPHC patients are Latino. BWH also provides face-to-face interpreter services for 30 different languages. Other than English, Spanish and French/Haitian Creole/Cajunare the most commonly spoken languages in BWH priority communities.

The Resident Stipend Program

We understand that living in Boston is expensive, and our hospitals wish to provide assistance to residents with significant financial challenges who might not otherwise be able to train here.

 

The Resident Stipend pilot program will provide cash stipends to physicians-in-training who:

  • match to our residency programs
  • are approved for the AAMC’s “Fee Assistance Program” (FAP) as an AMCAS applicant

 

This stipend is in addition to the standard PGY-level salary)with their confirmation of continuing financial need.

 

The total stipend amount of $30,000 will be distributed in 3 installments of $10,000 at the beginning of each academic year for the first 3 years of the residency program.

 

Programs included in the 2020-2021 Recruitment Cycle:
