Diversity

A culture that promotes diversity, inclusion, and respect for others is essential for inspired learning, academic excellence, and optimal patient care. Our program has been formally recognized and awarded by Harvard Medical School for our residency-wide efforts in recruiting and promoting under-represented minorities, and we take great pride in our long, pioneering history of female departmental leadership.

Despite an increasing awareness of the value of diversity for health care institutions, barriers still exist for women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups. As such, we are committed to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive residency program and promoting diversity within the hospital community. Residents with a specific interest in this important issue may participate in our Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program to provide a framework for the development of knowledge and skills specific to promoting diversity and inclusion as it pertains to neurology trainees.
