BMC’s Commitment to the Community:
The majority of Boston Medical Center‘s patients come from underserved or vulnerable populations, including low-income families, older adults, people with disabilities and immigrants. Over 50% of patients are from racial and ethnic minority populations and over 30% do not speak English as their primary language.
Boston Medical Center is also part of a large network of Community Health Centers that provide integrated healthcare, outreach, prevention, primary and specialty care across Greater Boston’s neighborhoods.
Whether it be our commitment to nourishing our community with fresh, local produce, through our own rooftop farm, performing demonstrations for how to prepare healthy meals in our teaching kitchen, writing “prescriptions” for our preventative food pantry, treating substance use disorders in our Grayken Center for Addiction, or providing comprehensive, integrative primary and consultative care to our refugee and immigrant patients by providing on-site interpreters and phone interpreters for more than 250 languages, Boston Medical Center has an commitment to uncompromising excellence and caring for those most in need.
Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion:
We are deeply committed to the recruitment, engagement and advancement of underrepresented minority trainees, clinicians and staff at Boston Medical Center. We believe having a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential to providing excellence in patient care, research and education. Learn more about what our Section is doing here.
