Diverse voices among our faculty, trainees and staff promote cultural competency throughout the department, help us care for our patients, support research impacting underrepresented populations, and encourage our trainees and faculty to find ways to reduce health disparities. More importantly, it makes us better clinicians, educators, and investigators, and allows us to build meaningful bridges with our surrounding community.
The Department of Medicine will create an environment where everyone matters and all voices are equally heard.
The Department of Medicine trained and certified local BRIM leaders/implementers. If you would like to schedule a BRIM workshop for your division/group - open to all faculty, staff and trainees, contact Sonia Flores.
The Equity Oversight Committee and its Equity Oversight Committee Charter serves to ensure that all DOM committees are composed of a balanced representation that reflects the ethnic, racial, and gender balance of our campus, that there is transparency about this representation, and that committees whose members are not representative of our campus are helped to achieve such balance in a timely fashion.
The Equity and Inclusion Policy applies to all Department-level:
