Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Celebrating our Diverse and Dynamic Community
Graduate Medical Sciences believes that an enriching educational experience is strengthened by diversity of thought which in turn drives the forces of innovation. We embrace differences in ethnicity, race, gender identity and expression, disability status, religion, sexual orientation, immigration status and socioeconomic backgrounds in our learning community.
We strive to create a culture and climate that demonstrates these beliefs by developing academic, clinical and research programming that aims to educate, recruit and retain an inclusive community that will prepare future generations of biomedical research and clinical leaders and meet the needs of an ever-changing diverse society that exemplifies social justice.
RESPONSE TO COVID-19:
We understand these are very challenging times for many students, and want to support our community in any way possible. GMS has put together a list of resources, which can be accessed here. You can also setup a virtual office hour with DEI Associate Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Farrah Belizaire, by emailing Farrahab@bu.edu.
