Diversity enriches training, scientific discovery, and promotes the best healthcare. 

We are committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and a climate of respect for patients and their families, our students, trainees, faculty, and staff. We strive for diversity in race, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender-identity, and socioeconomic background.

The Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to:

  • Recruitment, retention and advancement of faculty, fellows, residents, students, and staff from groups under-represented in medicine and to an inclusive and equitable environment.
  • Advocacy and outreach to underserved and/or marginalized populations to improve equity in healthcare outcomes.
