The faculty and leadership of the Department of Medicine embrace diversity as a core value. We recognize that a diverse faculty is best suited to:

  • Provide multiple options for mentors and role models for junior faculty, trainees and medical students.
  • Create translational, interdisciplinary research teams that will challenge established paradigms in the medical sciences.
  • Deliver culturally sensitive exceptional care without exception to our uniquely diverse patient population.
  • Advocate effectively improving the health of our patients, community, nation and world.

The diversity of our faculty, trainees and patients contributes to the Department of Medicine being a vibrant place to investigate, teach, advocate, and practice. Hence, the Department’s leadership and faculty members commit to recruit, retain, support, advance, and promote a diverse faculty.

The Department of Medicine’s Office of Faculty Development & Diversity collaborates closely with the Boston University School of Medicine Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
