The Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (CFDD) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) was established to eliminate healthcare disparities, in part by building an exceptional and diverse workforce of physicians, scientists, educators, nurses, and staff who reflect the communities that we serve. We are committed to achieving our shared goals through innovative programming that fosters academic advancement, professional development, medical education, leadership, and mentoring.

Our community of supporters is critical to keeping BWH at the forefront of clinical care and medical education. Together, we are committed to building a more equitable future.

With your support, the CFDD will foster diversity in the next generation of physicians, scientists, and educators who bridge the differences among genders, races, orientations, languages, cultures, and ethnicities. You can help us transform healthcare access and delivery by allowing us to provide a wide array of programs in academic advancement, professional development, medical education, leadership, and mentoring. Philanthropic support will also provide sustainable funding for our multi-tiered diversity efforts, including pipeline programs for future medical professionals and fellowships for racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in medicine.

BWH offers a number of ways to make significant charitable gifts to the CFDD:
