Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Medicine Scholarly Track
As GUSOM graduates serve increasingly diverse patients and communities, healthcare inequities continue to persist in minoritized and underserved communities. Georgetown University recognizes these realities and is committed to developing a dynamic, thriving, and diverse team of healthcare professionals that more fully represent the communities it serves.
Equipping medical students with the knowledge, skills, behaviors, and attitudes that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) will positively impact patients, student learners, healthcare organizations, and society by developing trainees that aim to improve both the clinical learning environment, outcomes, healthcare quality, and patient satisfaction from groups historically excluded and underrepresented in medicine.
The goal of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Medicine track is to prepare the learner for leadership and advocacy roles in academic and healthcare organizations. The track will prepare students to evaluate, design, implement, and disseminate interventions which promote DEI-related outcomes.
