Diversity & Inclusion

Providing an equitable education, one student at a time.

Diversity and equity are essential to the development of future leaders in healthcare and research; they enrich intellectual development, academic discourse, patient care, and research. That is why our office commits to developing innovative programs that educate, recruit, and retain a diverse, multicultural community of faculty, students, staff, and trainees.

BUSM has been committed to inclusion and diversity since our founding—both at the school and through our community outreach. Created by a merger of Boston University and the New England Female Medical College in 1873, we were the first coeducational medical school in the nation. Our alumni include the first black female physician and the first Native American physician. It’s more than just talk for us. Recruiting and retaining a heterogeneous student body and faculty are a priority. We firmly believe in diversity of culture, race, and gender—and also ideas, solutions, and perspectives as critical components of achieving excellence at BUSM.
