Our mission is to promote cultural diversity among the faculty, fellows, and house staff of the Weill Department of Medicine. We seek to create pipeline opportunities that will foster research in minority health and health care policy, to educate physicians on the sociocultural influences affecting a patient's health, beliefs and behaviors, and to expand the relationship of the department and the larger institution with the community.
The Department of Pediatrics, in partnership with the WCM Office of Diversity and Inclusion, seeks to foster working and educational environments where all persons can succeed, thrive, and find community, irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, age or any other domain of identity.
Weill Cornell Psychiatry is deeply committed to creating an inclusive environment for residents from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We are partnering with NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine to expand opportunities and community-building initiatives for current residents and prospective applicants.
The goal of the Diversity Center of Excellence awarded from the Health Resources and Services Administration, is to increase the number of Underrepresented Minority (URM) physicians in the workforce and in academic medicine.
