We are committed to developing training physicians to work with the breath of community we serve.
Graduate Medical Education at Baylor College of Medicine is committed to improving the culture and climate of social equity by addressing biases and to learn the factors that perpetuate inequity. We are dedicated to fostering a transformative culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion to create an environment powered for optimal education, research and clinical excellence throughout our residency and fellowship programs.
Through education and prevention, we support our faculty, staff and trainees by bringing together people from diverse backgrounds to enrich the academic environment so that all are able to achieve their academic and professional goals. We will ensure equity in the hiring, professional development, promotion, retention, participation in department activities, and support of women and underrepresented faculty, staff and learners. We are dedicated to eliminating all forms of bias and discrimination and elevating social consciousness and cultural competence.
Working at Baylor College of Medicine, I’ve learned just how involved the faculty and staff are. Not only have I experienced DEI events with residents, but I have sat besides program coordinates behind closed doors to have personal and in depth conversations on how to be the most progressive, intentional, and educated institution we can be.
