Our culture is an integral part of who we are as a department.

It captures our employees’ well-being, the environment in which we work, our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, giving back, and the health of our patients and community. We view our unique culture as one of the most important keys to success in achieving our mission.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our department strives to reflect the rich diversity of the world around us. We are proactive in creating a welcoming environment inclusive of individual views, gender identity, ethnicity, and racial background.

As part of our quadripartite mission, we are committed to the principles of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Specifically, we aim to create and foster an environment that values and recognizes everyone’s unique attributes, and one in which all members of our department and institution feel welcomed, included, and are treated with respect.
