Diversity & Inclusion

We value diversity in our Division and Training Program and are aware of all aspects of human differences such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability and age.

Diversity improves the educational experience, strengthens our team, makes us more effective problem solvers, and helps us take care of our patients from multi-cultural backgrounds.

It is our goal to create an environment that fosters belonging, respect, and value for all.

Annual Diversity Lecture

Each year, we invite one speaker to present an annual Diversity Lecture at grand rounds. Past presenters include Drs. Reshmi Jagsi and Col. Jeff Hutchinson, and Tom Varghese Jr.
