Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to your department?

The Department serves a very diverse undergraduate and graduate student population.  Many Physiology and Medical Science majors are first in the family college attendees. 

Working with diverse and underserved populations has been a key tenet of our residency program since the early 1970s. In the past decade, we have refined our understanding of diversity and inclusion and continue to grow in this understanding and our actions to live out this core value.
