Involvement, Development, Equal Access, and Leadership (IDEAL)

Overview

The Department of Neurology in the Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine is an equal opportunity program, and is firmly committed to providing training and employment opportunities to outstanding, qualified individuals with all backgrounds and experience. We recognize the need for and value of improving equal access to all, and therefore strive to maintain a welcoming community that will allow for all faculty, staff, and trainees to realize their full potential. In doing so, we hope this will be a starting point for the transformative change needed in all levels of academia.
