Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

To enhance the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery with a team-based approach.

Mission Statement

We aspire to foster and maintain an equitable and inclusive environment that respects, welcomes, and is sensitive to the cultural identities of all races, ethnicities, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, beliefs, abilities, appearances, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We strive to recognize and correct any disparities that may exist in how we deliver care. We believe in building an orthopaedic team that nurtures an understanding that individual differences are valuable and critical in delivering the best care to our patients.
