Residency Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Statement
The Morehouse School of Medicine Dominican Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program is committed to improving health equity by increasing the number of underrepresented in medicine (URiM) and fluency in DEIB.
Our Programs seek to recruit and train those from racial and ethnic populations underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.
Diversifying the physician workforce is a well supported means to effectively improve health outcomes to the most marginalized and vulnerable communities. (see ACGME references 1 & 2)
We value those with a lived commitment to service and will examine their lived experiences when using our designed holistic approach for resident selection and evaluation.
Residents who join us in our program will find we are intentional about integrating a lens of equity and a sense of belonging throughout all didactics and clinical experiences.
Residents will train with faculty and staff who are supported by Dominican Hospital and our academic sponsor Morehouse School of Medicine.
Residents, Faculty and staff will be supported to adopt best practices to employ diversity, equity, inclusion,and belonging in the residency training workplace.
We look forward to creating the next generation of Family Medicine physicians who will go on after residency to continue advancing health equity for the communities we serve.
Diversity is a fact.
Equity is a choice.
Inclusion is an action.
Belonging is an outcome.
