The iDREAM (Incentivizing Diverse Recruitment for Equity in Academic Medicine) programs aim to enhance representational diversity among the physician workforce to better reflect the diversity of the populations they teach and serve by identifying and retaining residents from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine (URiM). The iDREAM Resident Scholars Program is designed to support URiM residents to launch careers in academic medicine. The iDREAM Early Incentive Program offers incentives to recruit diverse talent into faculty positions at IU School of Medicine in partnership with clinical affiliates, IU Health and Eskenazi Health. iDREAM PLUS Programs for attending physicians support professional development for career advancement to develop diverse leadership for IU School of Medicine and affiliated health systems.

“PLUS exists to accelerate the rate of career advancement among our URiM faculty and physicians by supporting them in completing scholarly work; providing mentorship and sponsorship for career planning and professional development; and cultivating a sense of community to mitigate experiences of social and/or professional isolation that can threaten URiM physician vitality. In doing so, we hope to develop a leadership pipeline in service of building more diverse academic and clinical leadership teams.”
