Diversity, Equity and Inclusion within Graduate Medical Education


Our Committment


Graduate Medical Education at Baylor College of Medicine is committed to improving the culture and climate of social equity by addressing biases and to learn the factors that perpetuate inequity. We are dedicated to fostering a transformative culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion to create an environment powered for optimal education, research and clinical excellence throughout our residency and fellowship programs. 

Through education and prevention, we support our faculty, staff and trainees by bringing together people from diverse backgrounds to enrich the academic environment so that all are able to achieve their academic and professional goals. We will ensure equity in the hiring, professional development, promotion, retention, participation in department activities, and support of women and underrepresented faculty, staff and learners. We are dedicated to eliminating all forms of bias and discrimination and elevating social consciousness and cultural competence.
