The Division of Infectious Diseases is dedicated to strengthening the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts within our faculty, fellows, and staff. We understand the importance of delivering high quality care that is respectful of each person’s background, age, race, sex, gender identity, ability, and sexual orientation.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) includes:
- Efforts and plans to recruit, support, and promote trainees, faculty, and staff to create and maintain a diverse clinical, research and educational community.
- Commitment to focus on diversity and inclusion in research and medical education.
- Develop or refine fellowship curricula and faculty programming that addresses diversity and inclusion, including race in medicine, health disparities in infectious diseases, transgender health, and understanding structural racism.
- Support community-based partnerships and outreach initiatives, particularly those serving underserved and minority groups.
- Promote a culture that nurtures equality and reduces bias.
The faculty, fellows and staff in the Division of Infectious Disease closely collaborate with the Department of Medicine, Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and Brown University to provide a diverse and inclusive fellowship program that reflects the community we serve.
