Diversity and Inclusion
From the Vice Dean School of Medicine
We seek to build a diverse and vibrant community in the School of Medicine and our surrounding communities, where everyone feels acknowledged, respected and valued. We celebrate our accomplishments to date, but recognize that there is a great deal of work to be done. We welcome the efforts of all who wish to help us achieve our goal.
