The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Boston Medical Center and Boston University 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.

We are committed to the active pursuit of equity and inclusion for our faculty, residents, students and staff. We commit to the support of our local and regional community to create opportunities for employment and education. We support education about social determinants of health and embrace anti-racism.
