Students for Inclusion Diversity and Equity (SIDE)

As an independent student lead body, SIDE is composed of representatives from each class and our core cultural affinity groups. SIDE ensures that the voices of students are represented around equity, inclusion, and diversity matters and serves as a means of communication between Perelman administration, cultural affinity groups, and the medical student body.

SIDE works closely with IDEAL MEd and with the PSOM Offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, and Student Affairs, as well as collaborates with the Office of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (OIDE) and the Alliance of Minority Physicians (AMP).
