Promoting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion In Medicine

At UVM, diversity, equity and inclusion are not only broadly defined and valued, but also mission driven and integral to how we measure our success. We believe that diversity and inclusion supports the cultural humility that enhances clinical effectiveness, informs research and results in effective interaction in cross cultural situations.

The Office of Diversity Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) provides expertise and leadership in building diversity, inclusion and equity into the systems and culture of the College, including in the areas of recruitment and retention, research, and education.
