Message from Dean Charney, MD

Diversity among faculty, students, and staff is critical to overall excellence at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Our campus is located at the intersection of New York City's most and least affluent zip codes, and our patient population is among the most ethnically diverse in the United States. With this foundation, we are committed to—and uniquely positioned for—promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in research, clinical care, and education and to drive innovation. Indeed, our groundbreaking discoveries in biomedical science and our clinical innovation stem from the diversity and talent of our world-class research and medical faculty.

Our institution's diversity, equity and inclusion efforts and resources are both broad and detailed with sustained and committed leadership from a cross section of these individuals and groups:

I am proud to work with such committed and creative individuals. Their efforts, and the others you will read about on this site, are necessary to advancing our diversity mission, demonstrating the breadth of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and supporting excellence in all areas at Mount Sinai.
