Diversity at DukeMed
Duke Medicine is committed to Diversity. This means not only admitting and attracting a diverse array students, but also providing a “Culture of Inclusion” in which students and faculty from different backgrounds can come together, feel welcome, and work effectively once they are on campus.
Dean of the Medical School, Dr. Nancy Andrews, states that “As an academic medical center, it is our responsibility to train and mentor future physicians and scientists who understand and appreciate diversity.” Judy Seidenstein, the School of Medicine’s Chief Diversity Officer, adds that “Diversity and inclusion are drivers of institutional excellence that can accelerate our ability to innovate and solve complex problems.”
Students who are members of underrepresented groups or cultures find a number of groups to provide support, social events, and a means to provide service to the community. A list of these groups can be found here.
