The Office of Student and Resident Diversity is committed to increasing the diversity of our trainees (residents and fellows) to more closely reflect the population of patients that we serve. In collaboration with the Office of Graduate Medical Education, we provide special services to UC Davis residency and fellowship programs to support their efforts.

These services include:

  • Funding for diversity-focused recruitment events and programs
  • Networking opportunities with current medical students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine
  • Connecting residents and fellows to faculty diversity programs to raise awareness about careers in academic medicine
  • Funding for current trainees to present diversity-related scholarly work at academic conferences
