Vision Statement

As a medical school embedded within one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine aspires to be a leader in academic medical diversity initiatives and practice. 

  • We embrace a broad definition of diversity that includes not only students from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in medicine, but also other racial and ethnic, religious, gender, and sexual identities; people with disabilities, and socioeconomic diversity;
  • We espouse the advancement of diversity in the profession as a core strategic priority; 
  • We integrate diversity initiatives throughout our teaching, research, and clinical activities.
