Diversity & Inclusion

Core Values

The Department of Neurology strives to promote a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment in which all faculty, staff, and trainees can thrive and feel valued.

We are committed to:

  • maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for people of all backgrounds in order to enhance our ability to provide excellent clinical care, conduct cutting-edge research, and be a global leader in medical education
  • recruiting, retaining, hiring, and promoting trainees, staff, and faculty from diverse backgrounds and with diverse talents. The long-term goal is a highly diverse workforce that reflects the population that we serve.
  • promoting education and training that emphasize respect for differences in culture, language, and life experience, and that address both health disparities and the role that implicit and explicit bias can play in decision making
  • providing opportunities for trainees, staff, and faculty to engage with the local community in education and outreach efforts
