Explore Research Innovation at UCLA Health
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. 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.
This program gives historically underrepresented medical students (Black, Latinx, Indigenous, First Generation, Undocumented, and LGBTQ) the opportunity to learn about residency programs at UCLA, meet residents and faculty of historically underrepresented backgrounds, and engage with leadership from multiple departments.

Recruitment, Retention and Reaching Back
Dr. May, a UCLA Health gastroenterologist, has devoted her career to addressing racial disparities in health care, but she says she’s now been handed a megaphone because of the confluence of outcry over systemic racism and the coronavirus pandemic, which disproportionately kills people of color.
“George Floyd isn’t a one-off. The Black patient they took care of that died unnecessarily from a preventable condition isn’t a one-off. These stories are examples of larger problems that are occurring over and over again in our country. Unless we admit to that problem, we are not going to be able to fix the vicious cycle.”- Dr. Fola May, MD, PhD, MPhil, UCLA Digestive Diseases
