Diversity and Inclusion

The school promotes understanding and respect for diversity in cultures, religions, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, income, and expression of opinions. The School's programs strive to recruit diverse groups of students and educate all students to respect and meet the needs of an incredibly diverse patient populations. Our commitment to diversity can be found in the Diversity Policy.
