Graduate School of Medical Sciences
A partnership with the Sloan Kettering Institute

Tri-Institutional Minority Society

TIMS brings together students, administrators, researchers and faculty members from the Rockefeller University, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City to make scientific opportunities available to all underrepresented groups  and bring together all members of our scientific tri-institutional community. Our activities include organizing educational outreach, professional development, and networking programs. We also provide social opportunities to foster community across all three campuses.

Within our organization, we host events such as:
  • Professional Development:
    • Mentorship Meals (casual lunch with minority faculty/clinicians within NYC area)
    • WCM Diversity Week Panels 
      • Topics such as Early Careers in Non-Traditional Scientific Paths, Health disparities in research, etc.

  • Outreach
    • TIMS-Outreach Club Big Red STEM Day
    • TIMS-Clinical & Translational Science Center (CTSC) Ethics in Medicine movie screening + discussion

  • Social:
    • Office of Diversity New Student Welcome Party
    • TIMS-Rockefeller Inclusive Science Initiative (RISI) holiday parties
    • TIMS-NYU Central Park picnic outing
    • Local happy hours
