Within the mission of the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine is the desire to have a diverse faculty and residency through whom we can better care for our patients.

Diversity is an overarching concept that covers equity, inclusion, and improves wellness and resilience of healthcare professionals. 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion

Diversity relates to the ways that people are different, and includes race and ethnicity, age, language, religion, mental and physical abilities, and gender and gender identity, 

Equity refers to fair treatment, access, equality of opportunity and advancement. It also refers to the removing of barriers that prevent some groups from fully participating.

Inclusion is about welcoming every person or group to participate.
