Inclusion in medical education is crucial.

As the guardians of humanity, physicians must be trained to treat all patients with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. That’s why integrating DEI into medical education is vital. Its principles not only produce clinically competent physicians, but also culturally sensitive, socially responsible, and capable doctors, who have the skills to address the diverse and complex healthcare needs of the population.

At Noorda-COM, we are devoted to creating a culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion. (Request demographic information about our faculty, students, or staff here.)
