Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We firmly believe in fostering an environment that values and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our program. We recognize that diversity encompasses a wide rage of identities, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic background, and religious beliefs. By embracing these principles, we aim to create a rich, dynamic, and inclusive learning environment that nurtures the personal and professional growth of our fellows while ensuring the highest standard of care for our patients.

We understand that achieving DEI requires ongoing commitment and intentional actions. To fulfill this commitment, we will:

  • Recruit and retain a diverse cohort of fellows through targeted outreach efforts and partnerships with organizations that support underrepresented groups in psychiatry.
  • Offer ongoing DEI training and education to fellows, faculty, and staff to foster cultural competence, increase self-awareness, and promote inclusive practices.
  • Continuously assess our policies, practices, and curriculum to ensure they are inclusive, equitable, and reflect the diverse needs of our fellows and patients.
  • Establish mentoring and support networks that facilitate the professional growth and success of fellows from underrepresented backgrounds.
  • Actively participate in community engagement initiatives and collaborate with local organizations to address mental health disparities and promote health equity.
  • Regularly evaluate and report our progress in fostering DEI within our program to maintain transparency and accountability.
