A Top Priority .

At Georgetown we embrace diversity in our residency, our faculty, and our community. We understand that an inclusive academic program will enrich our learning environment and improve care of the patients we serve. Our program is dedicated to recruiting and retaining a diverse group of residents and faculty.  Our team welcomes members of all ages, ethnicities, genders, races, religions, sexual orientations and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Dynamic Curriculum .

Diversity and inclusion permeates all aspects of our curriculum.  Every clinical shift our residents have the opportunity to care for and learn from a profoundly diverse patient population.  We offer elective rotations focused on the care of unique populations. During didactics, we address the importance of diversity and inclusion via lectures, journal clubs, workshops, small group discussions, and simulation.  We highlight the importance of understanding and mitigating implicit bias.
