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, 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 2018 Diversity Inc “Top 5 Hospitals and Health Systems” list, and received the 2017 and 2018 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education.
“Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) are key drivers in supporting excellence in healthcare. Our vision is to embrace the principles of diversity and inclusion in our quest for equity and to make our outstanding academic health system even stronger. We continue to make meaningful strides and demonstrate tangible impact as our efforts in diversity and inclusion advance, positioning us as a national leader in the D&I space.”
