Diversity and Inclusion
The Boston Medical Center Department of Anesthesiology is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive cadre of residents and faculty. We strive to build an environment that allows everyone the opportunity to realize their unique potential. We are aligned with Boston Medical Center’s mission, and we strive to more fully reflect the communities we serve.
We are committed to recruiting, training, and advancing physicians from underrepresented in medicine (URiM) populations. Currently, 16% of our residents and 36% of candidates matched in March 2021 self-identify as URiM.
The mission of Boston Medical Center (BMC) is to provide exceptional care without exception. Throughout BMC, people and programs serve and support our patients in myriad ways that extend beyond high-quality medical and surgical care. These include a large rooftop farm that grows food for the hospital’s Preventive Food Pantry, the Violence Intervention Advocacy Program, the Boston Center for Refugee Health and Human Rights, and Boston Healthcare for the Homeless, and more.
