Committed to Diversity and Inclusion

At IU School of Medicine, the commitment to diversity includes race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, religion, socio-economic status, age, geography of origin and residence, sexual orientation, disability, work style and other aspects of human attributes and behaviors. The school offers focused, systematic and sustained programs that are aligned with the three foundational pillars: representational diversity, inclusive working and learning environment, and cultural competence.

Representational Diversity

IU School of Medicine recruits talented trainees, faculty and staff from various backgrounds with focused efforts toward identified diversity categories.

Inclusive Environment

IU School of Medicine is dedicated to creating an environment that fosters inclusion throughout the organization.

Cultural Competence

Culturally competent, patient-centered care is the foundation of providing excellent health care, eliminating health disparities and contributing to innovative breakthroughs in science.

Schoolwide Advocacy and Support

Advancing culturally competent education, clinical care and research is a priority. Developing a culture in which all individuals within the medical school community at all nine campuses feel included, valued and respected is crucial. IU School of Medicine is committed to establishing an organizational culture in which differences—including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and other physical abilities and qualities—are present and highly valued. That is a culture in which all people are inspired to fully participate.
