Med-Peds Faculty and Residents Kneel in Support of Black Lives Matter

Our Internal Medicine Programs — Categorical, Primary Care, Preliminary and Med-Peds — have a shared vision to attract, develop, excite and retain exceptional people in our programs and community. We want to recruit a diverse group of faculty, residents and students that make substantial, lasting impact to create an inclusive environment where all students, residents/fellows, faculty and staff will thrive.

We have a Graduate Medical Education Diversity and Inclusion Subcommittee composed of faculty and residents from all programs that advises our institution in planning various activities to advance our mission as GME programs, as well as Internal Medicine program leaders who are committed to this work.
