Our Residency Program is committed to training the best residents from all ethnic, racial, and gender groups. This enhances our learning environment and promotes diversity among our trainees and faculty. It contributes to the success of our graduates who will care for a diverse patient population locally and around the world.

Medical students who interview for residency are able to meet with faculty and residents from underrepresented groups in medicine during their visit. Robust mentoring and support is provided in the program, department and institution for our residents.
