Advocacy, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Our Internal Medicine Residency Program is committed to promoting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. As a residency program, we recognize the importance of addressing racism and bias at a systemic and interpersonal level. We believe we must actively work to deliver equitable healthcare and address injustice. Below are a few examples of what we are doing as a program to engage:
- Monthly lunch conference curriculum focused on DEI topics including case-based learning cultural learning and community guest speakers
- A Substance Use Disorder curriculum including mandatory clinical rotations in Addiction Medicine
- Community Health Worker led series of workshops to cultivate cultural humility and to increase resident understanding of local resources available to our patients
- Holistic recruitment of residents from diverse backgrounds, including underrepresented groups
Community Service & Advocacy
