We firmly believe that equity, diversity, and inclusion in our fellowship program improves education, provides tremendous opportunities for community engagement, and creates better-trained physicians. The Tulane School of Medicine's Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship Program ensures that all fellows receive an accredited educational experience of the highest quality. As part of that responsibility, we firmly believe that equity, diversity, and inclusion in our program improves education, provides tremendous opportunities for community engagement, and creates better-trained physicians. We are committed to developing and growing a workforce that reflects the rich diversity of race, of gender, of religious belief, of national origin, of ethnicity, of age, of ability, and of sexual orientation found in the unique community and culture of New Orleans. In doing so, we understand the importance of providing a training environment intolerant of discrimination against any individual on the basis of race, gender, religious belief, national origin, ethnicity, age, disability, gender, or sexual orientation. It is our goal that all fellows feel supported and mentored and are provided with equal access to opportunities for professional growth and advancement.
Tulane University is committed to equity as the driver of diversity and inclusion throughout the institution. Tulane defines diversity broadly to include persons of color, members of the LGBTQIA community, members of diverse ethnic groups including those typically underrepresented in medicine, members of economically disadvantaged groups, and any others who bring a different perspective to the learning environment. Please see the Tulane School of Medicine Diversity Statement for more details.
