Located in the heart of an economically distressed and diverse urban area, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is acutely aware of the impact of the national systemic problems related to the lack of health equity and access to affordable, culturally responsive healthcare. In response, we will address issues to promote health equity through education, care delivery, workforce development, and research. We recognize that an environment enriched with persons from varied backgrounds working to address health disparity enhances scholarly work and the development of a culturally aware and responsive healthcare workforce.
The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University values and embraces a diverse community reflected by individuals’ race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sex, sexual orientation, sexual identity, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, language, national origin, religious affiliation, spiritual practice, mental and physical ability/disability, and age. In response to the needs of our local community and patient population, we will concentrate our recruitment and retention efforts on students, residents, and faculty who identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/ Latino, and/or educationally and economically disadvantaged, while also being intentional in our efforts to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for women and LGBT students, residents, faculty, and staff.
We are committed to achieving a climate of inclusion that respects and affirms diverse backgrounds and life experiences.
