DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
The University of Arizona Family Medicine Residency is committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity within our residency program to foster a welcoming and supportive environment and better care for our diverse patient population. Through collaboration with the Department of Family and Community Medicine, the University of Arizona, and the Tucson community, we strive to bring awareness around topics of disparities, diversity, and inclusion to better understand the community’s needs and provide culturally competent care. We aim to increase diversity in our residency program by supporting the recruitment and retention of diverse staff, residents, and faculty, and to give back through outreach and mentorship. We also aim to provide a safe space for learners, faculty, and staff to raise concerns, ask questions, and problem solve issues around diversity.
Focus areas include Awareness/Education, Recruitment/Retention/Representation and Community Outreach.
