Commitment to Diversity
Our goal is to create a medical team reflective of the community and the world we serve. We achieve this goal by ensuring the inclusion and representation of all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and physical ability.
"I was drawn to Stanford because of its strong commitment to forward-thinking education, the dedicated educational team, and the diverse and individualized resident training environment."
