Center for Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion


The Center for Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, formerly Office of Multicultural Affairs is here to support the academic and professional success of our medical students by providing a training environment that is diverse, inclusive, collaborative and supportive. Here you will find valuable opportunities to connect with others as you traverse the pathway to medicine - from summer programs, student groups, financial resources, study tips and strategies for success. We also provide resources for curriculum, cultural proficiency, professional development, and faculty development.  We hope you will visit us again and again and check out what's new in CEDI.
