Anesthesiology Diversity Council

About Us

The Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain Medicine values diversity. The Anesthesiology Diversity Council (ADC) was formed in 2016. Initially the ADC included a few ambitious residents and faculty with a vision, and has since expanded to now include faculty, fellows, residents, and interns throughout the department. The goal of the ADC is to create a functional unit that will identify and cultivate the skills necessary to foster diversity, provide mentorship, create scholarly opportunities and prepare Stanford's anesthesiologists to address the health needs of a diverse population.
