We value diversity, equity and inclusion in our Department and Training Program and strive to make our residents of all races, ethnicities and self-identifications feel accepted and supported. We 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. We have a longstanding commitment to resident wellness and a major component of wellness is a sense of belonging and community.
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.
