As an educational institution founded by healthcare providers, we hereby declare our mission:
We are a diverse community of healthcare providers constantly seeking excellence in all things we do and cultivating life as we provide quality care through active learning, advocacy for social justice, and collective empowerment.
We define diversity as acceptance, respect, understanding and recognition of each individual’s uniqueness – being different from others. These differences can be along, but not limited, to the dimensions of academic, socio-economic, ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds, disability, and sexual orientation.
We further believe that practicing diversity combined with multicultural education can provide a safe and nurturing environment for everyone.
