The OB-GYN Department’s Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion was established in 2017 and includes a growing group of faculty, residents and staff who are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive culture within our department and residency program.
The University of Colorado OB-GYN Residency Program is committed to celebrating diversity in all forms. Our mission is to foster a welcoming, inclusive program that actively employs strategies to recruit highly qualified residents from underrepresented groups in medicine to The University of Colorado. In addition, we encourage a community that supports and welcomes our residents regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religious or political beliefs, sexual orientation or gender identity among other characteristics.
The University of Colorado School of Medicine (SOM) shares in its commitment as evidenced by the 2015 Diversity plan which presents the following goals: promote academic advancement and success of minority house officers; break down racial, gender, ethnic stereotypes to promote an inclusive climate; and promote areas of scholarship related to cultural and racial inequalities in health care.
By striving for a diverse residency program, we aim to prepare residents to succeed in navigating the complexities related to health and healthcare disparities in our rapidly changing society.
One of the University of Colorado’s Department of OB-GYN’s guiding principles is to promote cultural and gender diversity and equal opportunity within our institution. Therefore, the OB-GYN Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Externship Scholarship Program was created to provide financial support to fourth-year medical students from underrepresented backgrounds (racial, ethnic, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identification) during the University of Colorado’s Visiting OB-GYN Acting Internship. Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and attend an allopathic medical school in the U.S. to be eligible. The scholarship awards $1,000 in financial support to be used for travel and housing costs.
