Resident Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Emory Emergency Medicine Residency program follows the University School of Medicine's committment to ensuring a climate of inclusion and organizational equity by leveraging the varied attributes of diversity in our community. Our commitment is amplified by our mission to recruit and develop a diverse group of students and innovative leaders in Emergency Medicine.
It is imperative that the training program trains, and recruits learners who relate to, engage with, and meet the needs of the multicultural and international communities we serve. Organizational culture rich in diverse attributes and life experiences enhances our ability to deliver equitable, cross-cultural healthcare and lead the effort to eliminate health inequalities and improve health outcomes globally.
The SOM's Organizational Equity and Inclusion team is responsible for the overall design of equity, diversity, and inclusion programs within the School of Medicine. This team works in tandem with the Offices of Faculty Affairs & Development and Multicultural Medical Student Affairs to ensure continuous recruitment and retention, engagement and development programs positively impact student, trainee, faculty, and staff populations, and cultivate a climate of inclusion within the School of Medicine.
The Department of Emergency Medicine's involvement in ADIEM and our internal Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee strives to create a residency program in line with the SOM's mission.
