Who We Are
T.I.M.E.4Her is a 501c3 nonprofit organization formed to teach, inspire, mentor, and encourage women of color to pursue a career in the field of medicine. With an emphasis on community education through social media, dialogue, group activities, seminars, and outreach, T.I.M.E.4Her aims to enlighten others regarding the disparities present within healthcare, and promote diversity in medicine as a way in which those inequities can be improved.
Through a virtual platform, TIME4Her aims to teach those pursuing careers in medicine how to ensure they are competitive applicants during the medical school admissions process.
Through social media, our goal is to shine a light on women of color working hard to serve others within the healthcare sector. By sharing the stories of these amazing black female physicians, we want to show our participants that they, too, can be physicians against all odds.
According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, there are over 90,000 medical students in the United States. ONLY 7% are black. Additionally, only 2.6% of physicians in the United States are black women. Our goal is to help increase those numbers through DoctHER Loading, our formal mentorship program here in eastern Virginia.
The journey to and through a career in medicine is not easy. Through mentorship, our aim is to provide a resource to those women pursuing careers in medicine. Our goal is to provide an encouraging word when needed and to celebrate the victories along the journey as well.
