The Department of Neurology has a vision to attract, develop and retain exceptional people to our program and community. Our goals as a department are to recruit a diverse group of faculty, residents and students who make lasting, substantial impacts that create an inclusive environment where all students, residents and fellows, faculty, and staff will thrive.

We believe in fostering a culture of inclusivity and excellence, where we embrace and value all identities and differences — including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, educational backgrounds and geographic region. We seek to harness the differences, talents and unique qualities of all individuals. 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. Our department also has leaders who are committed to this work.

We invite you to join our mission in creating an environment of inclusivity and support as we all work to promote equity within health care and a learning environment that brings out the best in each of us. We join the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, which has made a commitment to inclusive excellence outlined in our Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence (PDF), the 12 Action Steps Toward Inclusive Excellence, as well as our Statement on Racism.
