"We want to ensure that diversity is more than a buzz word, and that our culture actually reflects the values of inclusion and fairness.

"All of us at SOM, students, faculty, trainees and staff alike, are part of that process. Together, we are building a community in which differences of every kind --gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and beyond -- are not only valued but seen as a means to excellence."
- Greg Townsend, MD
Associate Dean for Diversity

For physicians-in-training, learning the cross-cultural skills to communicate across differences of every kind is essential. UVA School of Medicine has over three decades’ experience promoting diversity among medical and graduate students, through a variety of mentoring and educational programs.
