We are known for providing outstanding clinical education to medical students, residents and fellows, conducting ground-breaking research and developing innovative community engagement programs designed to improve the health of individuals, families and communities.

All identities and differences including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, educational backgrounds and geographic region are embraced and valued. A culture of inclusive excellence creates role models, broadens perspectives, combats negative stereotyping and optimizes our ability to provide exceptional healthcare for all.
