Diversity is inherent in University of Massachusetts Medical School’s mission to advance the health and well-being of the people of the Commonwealth and the world through pioneering education, research and health care delivery. As an institution, we are preparing tomorrow’s physicians, nurses and scientists to serve and relate to a multicultural society by increasing representation of minorities and women in student, faculty and staff positions, improving the cultural competence of our workforce through diversity education, and building an inclusive culture where we learn from our differences.
