The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA (DGSOM) Anti-racism roadmap is our co-created path to ensuring racial justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.
The commitments and priorities outlined here represent the first step in our planning, development and implementation process.
Strategies and actions across all areas will be co-created over the coming months and years in close collaboration with the DGSOM Faculty Equity and Diversity Inclusion Committee, the DGSOM Staff Racial Justice Task Force, and our entire DGSOM community of trainees, staff and faculty.
UCLA has a robust system of reporting and support resources for those in need of guidance, counseling or resolution services.

We hear you, we see you, let's take steps to change together. The following 11 categories and proposals, with your input, are being refined and expanded upon to ensure that we are taking bold, decisive and evidence-based actions that reflect the needs and perspectives of our DGSOM community.
Below track the progress of changes in motion, and share your voice to co-create the next steps.

We pulled the enrollment data for MD programs from 2008 to the present year. What we found shows us that we have made progress in the last decade, but that we still have work to do to have our student body truly reflect the diverse population of Los Angeles.
