Stanford Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program

Leading in Diversity and Inclusion

Our program feels strongly that diversity of ethnic, religious, and gender identity is critical to creating an environment of truly collaborative learning and teamwork. In today’s society, cultural humility is a necessity for physicians to deliver the best possible care for patients, and we believe that this principle begins with diversity within our fellowship program. To that end, recruiting trainees from underrepresented backgrounds, locales, and regions is a major priority for our leadership, as we hope this brings a wealth of experiences and perspectives to our program. The Bay Area is home to one of the most diverse populations in California and the patient population we serve reflects this diversity. We recognize that diversity is a continuous cultural ambition and welcome everyone to participate. We take a broad and inclusive view of diversity to include race/ethnicity, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, physical abilities, socioeconomic status, religion, and first generation in higher education status. We are actively working on strategies to broaden the diversity of our trainees and faculty.

We welcome interviewing applicants to attend our department diversity reception.

The Office of Diversity in Medical Education (ODME) serves as the hub for diversity related pathway and career development programs for pre-medical, medical students, residents, and fellows at Stanford. The GME Diversity Committee is a resident and fellow-led group, supported by ODME, that focuses on the recruitment, inclusion, professional development, and mentorship of diverse GME trainees. Each year a diversity recruitment reception is held for applicants across all Stanford GME training programs to meet each other and our current diverse trainees across our GME community.
