When people from all walks of life come together, everyone walks away with a better perspective. Diversity in all its forms—ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, religious, gender, sexual orientation, education, regional—is intrinsic to a healthy, well-rounded medical education.
Equally, what we learn through engaging in research and clinical interactions with a full spectrum of patients, both locally and globally, prepares us to be better doctors wherever we choose to serve.
We Focus on Issues that Matter to You
You see it in the classes we take—courses on healthcare disparities and cultural competency are taught as part of the core.
You see it in the research we pursue—faculty in the medical school tackle all aspects of these important issues and give students plenty of opportunity to get involved.
You see it in the med school community—from student groups of all kinds to an administration that’s really dedicated to supporting students, you can connect with people while exploring your interests.
