Peer Facilitators Needed

The Gateway Curriculum is searching for faculty, fellows, residents and medical students to act as peer facilitators for the Community Engagement component of the Gateway curriculum, which will house the anti-bias/racism education.

The primary function of a peer facilitator is to facilitate discussions amongst incoming students on various topics to support students in building their voices, enhancing their identity and promoting community engagement. Some of the responsibilities of this role will include leading small group discussion and possibly workshops on various subjects related to active listening, anti-bias/racism, social and structural determinants of health, community engagement through service-learning, and health equity.

Selected students will lead a variety of discussions and interactions with the incoming students, in collaboration with the community engagement and health equity leads. Please note you do not need to be a content expert and that some training is required. To learn more about this opportunity through our informational session, please email Audrey Coolman at a.a.coolman@wustl.edu
