ISMMS is committed to promoting and supporting diversity and inclusion in the research, clinical, and educational realms, and to meeting the needs of our diverse students, faculty, staff, and the communities we serve. We are committed to increasing the representation of women, ethnic minorities, and individuals who are members of groups underrepresented in medicine and science among our trainees, research and clinical faculty and our leadership.
Diversity in the health professions and science benefits every aspect of health, healthcare and biomedical research by addressing the needs of the world’s diverse communities. In addition, a diverse professional and academic environment enhances the learning experiences of all students, trainees, and postdoctoral fellows and effectively impacts culturally diverse populations to achieve health equity and improve health outcomes.
Mount Sinai’s commitment to diversity is reflected in our continued determination to increase the diversity of our faculty and trainees. Our longstanding tradition of successfully attracting, retaining, and promoting a diverse student body has made us a national leader in the movement to train future physicians and scientists belonging to groups historically underrepresented in medicine and science.
