Where Excellence Meets the Future of Medicine
Our Mission states that you (our students), staff, and faculty will learn from the School’s engagement of a socioeconomically and racially diverse workforce and student body thereby augmenting all of our abilities to deliver the highest quality care to diverse populations.
Training and working in environments and settings that are diverse and inclusive and contain persons from all backgrounds, is critical to ensuring that our graduates will have the highest level of knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors. It will enhance the training, education, and practice of all clinicians, and is essential to ensuring the highest quality healthcare outcomes for all populations.
