Diversity Statement


The University of Chicago Internal Medicine Residency Program stands firmly against racism in health care and in society. As a residency program with a diverse population of patients, residents and staff, we have seen firsthand the devastating effects of systemic racism on the health and well-being of our community. We are committed to providing equitable health care to all patients.  Beyond our delivery of healthcare, we seek to address inequities within Chicago’s South Side through long-term partnerships with community-based organizations and advocacy. Within our residency program, we seek to challenge our own implicit biases, educate ourselves on health disparities, and build a more diverse and inclusive environment that enables all trainees to reach their unlimited potential.
