Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Fourth-year medical student before match day 2016

Our commitment to inclusive excellence is reflected in many years of supporting students who self-identify from groups underrepresented in medicine, specifically Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and educationally or economically disadvantaged. Our current student body represents a wide range of cultural backgrounds. As the fabric of society becomes more diverse, it is critical that we continue to build on our success.

The Office of Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion sponsors ongoing programs, events and activities designed to support and enrich the educational journey of all students as they navigate their career paths and supports efforts to create community-based health equity.
