Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at BMC

The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Boston Medical Center and Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine strongly believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, residents and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our clinical, research and academic programs. As a department and institution we embrace and champion justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. While our organization has a rich history of inclusion and diversity, we recognize that there is much work to be done to create a fair and just society.
