The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) is committed to promoting and supporting diversity and inclusion throughout our research, clinical, and educational realms among students, faculty, and staff, and in the communities we serve.  By expanding the definition, scope, nature, and presence of diversity in the science and health professions, we strive to better address patient needs across varied communities. We are proud that we were named to the 2015 DiversityInc “Top 5 Hospitals and Health Systems” list, and received the 2014 and 2015 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education.
