At the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix Department of Psychiatry and within the Psychiatry Residency Program, we believe in fostering a culture of Inclusive Excellence (PDF). 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 are embraced and valued.
A culture of Inclusive Excellence creates role models, broadens perspectives, combats negative stereotyping and optimizes our ability to provide world-class health care for all.
