Office of Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Leading Social Justice Initiatives

The Office of Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OHEDI) is committed to promoting health equity through education by recruiting, supporting, retaining, and advancing high-quality medical students from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in medicine (URiM). In response to the needs of our local community and patient population, OHEDI concentrates our recruitment and retention efforts on medical students, residents, and faculty who identify as Black, African-American, Hispanic, Latinx, and students who self-identify as educationally and/ or economically disadvantaged. We are also intentional in our efforts to create an inclusive environment for students, residents, faculty, and staff from other marginalized groups.

Promoting Health Equity

OHEDI recognizes that an environment enriched with people from varied backgrounds, working to address health disparities, enhances scholarly work and the development of a culturally aware and responsive health care workforce.
