Interaction Opportunities
Diversity & Health Equity

As a medical professional, you must actively investigate your own biases and expand your cultural humility. Our school incorporates a range of diversity- and health equity-focused topics throughout the Trunks and Branches curriculum, as well as providing opportunities to interact with a diverse group of peers, mentors and community members outside of the classroom and clinical settings.

Diverse Community
Culture of Inclusion

We value diversity in all its forms. It’s at the heart of a healthy, well-rounded medical education. We strive to maintain a balance between in-state and out-of-state residents so students can expect to rub shoulders with peers from all walks of life and, through these interactions, learn how to better relate with their future patients.
