2017 Annual Report: The diversity effect

The value of diversity is self-evident; when talented people bring varying perspectives to bear on complex problems, innovation flourishes and richer solutions arise. It’s a powerful recipe for addressing today’s toughest medical challenges.

Mirroring a university-wide effort, the Department of Surgery has made a major commitment to embracing several core values that support a culture of diversity. As a result, the department is building an increasingly diverse faculty, a broader research portfolio, and an environment that fosters optimal patient care and faculty satisfaction.
