Diversity

The Department of Neurology is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. We recognize that diversity and inclusion are integral to fulfilling our mission to develop and support innovators in patient care, scientific discovery, and neurological education.

The Department’s faculty, trainees and staff represent many divergent backgrounds. The Department has been recognized by the University for promoting Diversity. For more information about diversity at the University of Rochester, visit the URMC Office for Diversity and Diversity at the University pages.

In 2012, the Department appointed a Faculty Diversity Liaison Officer and established a Woman and Diversity in Neurology Committee. It’s primary goals are to promote and increase the number of faculty and trainees who are underrepresented in neurology and to ensure a welcoming and nurturing atmosphere for everyone in the Department.
