Department of Emergency Medicine Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) mission statement

The Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Department of Emergency Medicine is dedicated to cultivating and maintaining a culture of belonging that values diversity for all members of our Emergency Medicine care team. We aspire to deliver exceptional patient care with cultural humility and structural competency by fostering an inclusive and diverse team. We recognize that bias comes in many forms and is harmful not only to the people and groups who are directly impacted, but to all members of our community. As a safety net for our community, we believe we have a unique duty to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in order to provide the highest quality emergency care for our patients.
