The TEAM-Science Program has been established to increase the number of under-represented racial/ethnic minority (URM) students and students with disabilities (SWD) who enter into and successfully complete PhD programs in biomedical and behavioral sciences.
The overall goal of the TEAM-Science Program is to develop a diverse biomedical and behavioral research workforce. In addition to increasing the numbers of URM and SWD students awarded doctorates in biomedical or behavioral disciplines, we intend the TEAM-Science program to result in enduring changes in the approach to recruitment, retention, and academic career development of graduate students at UW.
Through success of the TEAM-Science and collaborating programs, the long-term outcome will be an increase in the diversity of ethnic/racial and disabled leaders throughout academic medicine, science and engineering.
