Graduate Medical Education
A Focus on Equity and Diversity Inclusion
UCLA is committed to training physicians from all backgrounds to be best prepared to care for a multicultural patient population. We strive to create a learning and working environment that is inclusive and supportive of all of our trainees, including those coming from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the field of medicine.
Resident and Fellow Communities
We believe that together we are stronger and thus focus our efforts on collaborating across our various training programs to build community. The GME Subcommittee on Equity and Diversity Inclusion was created as part our Office’s mission to bring together faculty and housestaff at various levels of training to enhance efforts surrounding recruitment, retention and reaching back.

MHO aims to recruit, develop and advance physicians from historically under-represented racial and ethnic groups in medicine, as well as advocate for the communities that helped raise them.
