The members of the Tulane Neurology Residency program recognize the importance of having a trainee and physician workforce that is consisted of individuals who reflect the diverse patient population that we serve. Therefore, we are strongly committed to establishing and providing an equitable, diverse, and inclusive learning and working environment. We are focused on recruiting and training residents of diverse ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, racial, and religious backgrounds.
Our approach to diversity and inclusion is simple – it is about accepting, embracing, and empowering everyone. We believe that when people feel respected and included, they can be more innovative and successful. We commit to providing an environment that is intolerant of discrimination against any individual based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, national origin, race, political and religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. It is our mission to ensure that all residents feel supported and provided with equal opportunities for professional growth throughout their residency.
We will work within the neurosciences department to continue to ensure the neurology faculty, researchers, trainees and staff reflect the diverse patient population that we serve. The neurology department is committed to advancing our diversity, equity and inclusion through initiatives that promote transparency and accountability.
We will develop initiatives to educate our trainees on healthcare disparities and social determinants of health to help promote equitable health care delivery to our patients.
