One moment...

Diversity Statement is committed to promoting and supporting diversity, in all of its many expressions. A diverse body of students in health professional schools today will ensure a stronger and more diverse health workforce tomorrow. It is our mission to foster equity, enlarge opportunities, and promote excellence in the health professions.

For the purposes of this website, the definition of diversity encompasses many characteristics, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, education, culture, heritage, religion, geography, physical abilities, and socio-economic status.

It is our hope that will help to create the ideal health professionals of tomorrow: Men and women of all ages and backgrounds, who are open-minded, compassionate, respectful of others, and committed to providing the best possible health care to all people in need, especially the uninsured and those who live in medically underserved areas.
