Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At the UC Davis Internal Medicine Residency Program, we proudly advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion in every facet of medical education and practice.

Our commitment to fostering a richly diverse and inclusive environment is at the core of our program's values. We are committed to recruiting, training, and supporting physicians that are underrepresented in medicine and those with a wide range of perspectives, backgrounds, and life experiences that enhance the learning and growth of all trainees and meet the workforce needs of our communities.
