SOM Diversity Statement

New York Medical College School of Medicine is committed to diversity among its students, housestaff, faculty and administration. Based on our shared commitment to cultural competency and social accountability in the School of Medicine (SOM), we will create and maintain a diverse student body, housestaff, faculty and administration. This includes efforts to sustain a positive academic and learning environment for all SOM individuals, embodying a variety of personal experiences, interests, sexual orientations and professional goals. The SOM has also established as a priority the recruitment of students who are from backgrounds considered underrepresented in medicine (URM), particularly those who are African-American and Hispanic/Latino.
