Justice, Equity, Diversity and Belonging (JEDIB)

The Department of Internal Medicine is continually striving to achieve justice and a sense of belonging within the department and externally as members of the communities we learn in, work in and serve. In a continuous effort to be exceptional servant leaders we align with the ACGME's Commitment to Equity.

Commitment to Equity

Assurance of the conditions for an optimal educational environment (workplace) in GME for all learners, faculty and staff (workplace) requires:

  • Valuing all individuals and populations equally
  • Recognizing and rectifying historical injustices
  • Providing resources according to need
