Diversity and Inclusion

Our department is fortunate to be part of an institution that is committed to addressing disparities in health and healthcare. The costs to our society are high; disparities lower the quality of life and negatively impact life expectancy for many. Our department philosophy is aligned with campus leadership in the areas of recruiting and retaining individuals traditionally under-represented in the health sciences, LGTBQ, and individuals with disabilities, to better reflect the diversity of the population we serve in the San Francisco Bay Area. We further recognize that successfully recruiting people to join our enterprise is not the end of the story. As eloquently stated in the UCSF Principles of Community, it is also critical that we provide an environment in which all individuals in our workforce and trainee programs experience a professional, supportive, collaborative and open environment and have the opportunity to thrive. We are dedicated to the ongoing pursuit of these goals.
