The RBHS Anti-Racism Initiative was launched in Fall 2020 and aims to ensure that we are actively anti-racist in all our people-related practices, in our classrooms, clinical settings, and throughout our workplace.


The RBHS Staff Mentoring Program (SMP) was launched in January 2021 as a pilot program. The goals of the program are to promote a culture of mentorship, professional development, and collaboration amongst staff members.

RBHS is an early collaborator in the SEA Change Biomedicine Bronze Awards pilot, which aims to work with senior leadership of medical schools and academic health sciences centers to develop the SEA Change Biomedicine framework and metrics.


Sharing our experiences in health care, especially during intense, emotional, or stressful times increases our connectedness and well-being.
