Diversity in Graduate Medical Education

The Office of Graduate Medical Education is committed to training physicians from all backgrounds and cultures and has an interest in developing a diverse community among residents and fellows from all training programs. This year we are planning several events including many social events, recruitment activities and opportunities to represent UCSF at various annual meetings of national medical organizations.

There are also opportunities to serve on diversity committees within the School of Medicine and the UCSF campus. All trainees interested in increasing the diversity among housestaff at UCSF are welcome to join us at future events. We also encourage all department chairs and program directors to share any ideas or suggestions for future activities.
