Diversity and Inclusion
The Department of Medicine and the Heart and Vascular Center share in the Diversity Vision of Geisel School of Medicine and embrace the definition of diversity in its broadest sense.
Diversity Vision of Geisel School of Medicine
Geisel School of Medicine believes a diverse and inclusive community of students, residents, faculty and staff enhances the educational experience, widens the path to leadership, and advances our mission of improving health locally, nationally, and globally. Geisel School of Medicine recognizes diversity as relating to gender, race, and ethnicity. In addition, for students entering the healthcare profession, we recognize socioeconomic background. Importantly, the definition of diversity also includes difficult to define measures or attributes such as the rich breadth of human experiences, talents and attributes. Geisel School of Medicine strives to allow the multiplicity of values, beliefs, interests and viewpoints of a diverse and inclusive community to foster excellence in our efforts to provide an exceptional medical and graduate education and address quality health outcomes for all.
