General Surgery Diversity

Diversity in the Division of General Surgery

We value diversity in our Division and Training Program and are aware of all aspects of human differences such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability and age.

Diversity improves the educational experience, strengthens our team, makes us more effective problem solvers, and helps us take care of our patients from multi-cultural backgrounds.

It is our goal to create an environment that fosters belonging, respect, and value for all.
