Resident and Faculty Success

CREATING AN EQUAL-OPPORTUNITY CULTURE

Female Neurosurgeons Menacho and Bisson

The Department of Neurosurgery is dedicated to fostering a welcoming culture; we believe that differing viewpoints strengthen the reach and vibrancy of our missions in clinical care, education, research, and service to our community.

We advocate for equal opportunities for faculty, staff, fellows, residents, and students. We believe the future of our field depends on our ability to create and maintain a balanced workforce that reflects the communities in which we live and practice. 

Committed to a Future of Belonging

Our department is committed to identifying and correcting any actions that support an unjust or discriminatory environment at every level of our organization.
