Diversity and Inclusion are core values at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). Our vision is to cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment that guides and transforms our approaches to healthcare, education, research and community partnerships.
Diversity of all kinds - talent, experience, gender, gender identity, veteran status, religion, abilities, race, ethnicity, culture, socio-economic background - is required to achieve excellence in any organization. Medical schools and academic medical centers are no exception. The Office for Inclusion and Culture Development provides the University of Rochester Medical Center community with a centralized office to access diversity resources, recruitment resources, and educational programs. We work closely with the medical center's senior leadership and the University's Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity to facilitate diversity efforts across the medical center, including within the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the School of Nursing.
I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions and look forward to meeting you at future events.
Linda Chaudron, MD, MS
Associate Vice President and Senior Associate Dean for Inclusion and Culture Development
