Diversity and Inclusion
We, the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, aim for excellence in all tenets of healthcare, including education, research, community engagement, and clinical care. We believe that the core values of diversity and inclusion are inseparable from our institutional goal. DGSOM leadership is committed to fostering an environment that celebrates the unique backgrounds, contributions, and opinions of each individual. Through fair and deliberate recruitment, hiring practices, promotions, admissions, and education, DGSOM will draw its talent from across the community and provide the highest quality of service to everyone we encounter. We believe in a system that supports outstanding faculty, fellows, residents, staff, and students with different perspectives and experiences. By a process of continual reevaluation, reflection, and shared responsibility, we are unwavering in our dedication to equality, communication, and respect.
