Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion Mission Statement
The MMC Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship is committed to fostering a collaborative, respectful and equitable environment where our learners, faculty, and teams can thrive in an ever-changing global community.
The program does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender (identity), age, religion, language, ability/disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, military status, geographic region, country of origin, or any other applicable protected status.
We are committed to recruiting diverse fellows, and faculty through the following:
- During recruitment season, the program director and faculty will be blinded to any ERAS filters that would allow candidates to be screened based on any of the aforementioned status. Pictures of candidates will be unavailable to reviewers during the screening of applicants.
- Prior to the interview season, the program director will emphasize the importance of a diverse training environment to both Fellows and Faculty. Faculty will be coached to avoid questions that could trigger implicit bias during the interview season.
- The Cardiology Fellowship program will advocate for the recruitment of diverse faculty by the Cardiac Service Line at MMC.
