University of Washington Department of Family Medicine’s Commitment to Diversity

We are committed to promoting health equity, to creating an inclusive culture by attracting and maintaining a diverse faculty, residency, and staff, and to ensuring equal access to employment, promotion, and professional development. We believe that this is achieved by intentionally creating opportunities for involvement, participation and growth for each individual and by nurturing a positive institutional climate through professional development, education, policy and practice. Our objective is to create a community that encourages participation and connection, and that values each individual’s unique contribution, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, spiritual practice, geography, mental and physical status and age.
