Recruitment & Multicultural Affairs

Welcome to the Office of Recruitment and Multicultural Affairs (ORMA) at Harvard Medical School.  ORMA focuses on the recruitment and support of medical students who are from groups historically underrepresented in medicine (URiM) and those who identify as LGBTQ. ORMA approaches this work with an intersectional lens. Our efforts have resulted in over 1,450 graduates who are Black, African American, Latinx, and Native American over the past 50 years.  In 2011, ORMA began serving LGBTQ students and continues to lead the way in inclusive support for this student population across the nation.
