Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

We believe diverse, inclusive faculty and student bodies ultimately produce more equitable patient care. Health disparities result from racism, and we are committed to becoming an anti-racist institution. Among other efforts, we are re-evaluating our recruitment and hiring processes, re-examining our curricula to further improve how we present race and disparities, and creating new leadership positions dedicated to anti-racism.
