The practice of anesthesiology requires a team-based approach to patient care in the perioperative setting, augmented by a spirit of cooperation, compassion, understanding, and respect. The Tulane University School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology is dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment. We celebrate diversity, including race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic background, national origin, political ideology, and religious beliefs. TUSOM Anesthesiology pledges to provide a safe environment for our residents, our faculty, and our patients.
We acknowledge and embrace that cultural and language concordance improve the care we provide to our patients and create an opportunity to address the issue of disparity and lack in healthcare.
We commit to our efforts to recruit, retain, mentor, and support residents and faculty from all backgrounds to reflect the rich diversity of the community we serve. TUSOM Anesthesiology will champion a mission to collaboratively develop and lead formal curricula addressing healthcare inequities, social determinants of health, cultural competency, and cultural humility. We acknowledge our vital role in institutional change and commit to embracing the needs of our community.
