Camille A. Clare, M.D., M.P.H. ’11, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology, is the associate dean of diversity and inclusion for the School of Medicine. Dr. Clare has been committed to addressing health inequity and healthcare disparities, illustrated by her leadership roles on the local, regional and national levels in the National Medical Association (NMA). NMA is the largest organization of African American physicians in the United States. Dr. Clare currently serves as president of the Manhattan Central Medical Society, the local affiliate of NMA. She has also served as health policy chair for the state NMA society in New York (Empire State Medical Association), where she was active in health policy advocacy and lobbying on health care disparities. In addition to her participation in the NMA, Dr. Clare has been an active member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), serving in a variety of roles on the section, district, and national levels, and on several national committees, including the ACOG Committee on Ethics, Nominating Committee, and Adolescent Health Care Committee.
At NYMC, she has been an active member of the Taskforce on Diversity and Inclusion and subsequently, the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion, serving on the subcommittee of Faculty Recruitment and Retention since its inception. Her goals in her new role include continuing and expanding the successes of the School of Medicine (SOM) in increasing the numbers of underrepresented minorities in medicine. She also plans to address diversity issues in graduate medical education, faculty, and administration in line with the mission of the SOM so that diversity equals excellence and excellence equals diversity.
