At the University of Colorado School of Medicine Graduate Medical Education (GME), we value diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as fundamental principles that guide our actions and decisions. We are committed to creating a diverse environment that fosters belonging where every member of our community feels valued, respected, and supported. We value the lived experiences that enhance our GME community, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, ability and socioeconomic status. We strive to foster a culture of openness and understanding, where all individuals share their perspectives and experiences, and learn from each other in a welcoming space. In addition to being a moral imperative, our commitment to DEI is essential to achieving our academic mission of providing excellent patient care and advancing knowledge through teaching and research with an ultimate goal of health equity for our patients and community. We believe an inclusive environment is integral for promoting critical thinking and in supporting our students, residents, fellows and faculty as responsible and engaged global citizens.
