At UCSF we strive to prepare fellows to work with diverse patient populations and colleagues by providing training that includes a variety of healthcare settings, clinical environments, and patient populations. This includes promoting a diverse and inclusive fellowship and faculty group that strives to address the challenges of health disparities.
Our core aims include creating a holistic fellowship selection process that values the unique contributions of each applicant. We work to encourage an inclusive training environment for fellows and faculty by providing a longitudinal course in diversity, equity and inclusion during fellowship training, in addition to other development opportunities for fellows and faculty. Our Diversity Champion supports these programmatic efforts and leads other initiatives throughout the Division to increase diversity and create a sense of belonging for all fellows and faculty.
