The University of Utah Department of Neurology is an equal opportunity program: proudly pluralistic and firmly committed to providing training and employment opportunities to outstanding, qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience. The Department of Neurology recognizes the need for and value of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and therefore strives to maintain a welcoming community that will allow for all faculty, staff, and trainees to realize their full potential. In doing so, we hope to inspire the transformative change that is needed in all levels of academia. To this end, we are developing a strategic plan to guide our resolve.
We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability status, and age. We promote racial justice and socially responsible medicine.
