The Department of Medicine strives for inclusive excellence. Inclusive excellence is the practice of assuring equity and inclusion in all matters pertaining to faculty, trainees and staff, as well as the continuous examination of departmental practices and operations. It is the recognition that the department’s success is dependent on how we value, engage and include the rich diversity of faculty, trainees, staff and alumni.
