Institute for Excellence in Health Equity

We promote equity in health outcomes and build an inclusive culture of medicine.

At NYU Langone Health’s Institute for Excellence in Health Equity, we are guided by our mission to achieve excellence in health equity research, clinical care, and medical education. Our vision is to become the leader in the development, implementation, and dissemination of evidence-based solutions to advance excellence in health equity, and to be a renowned magnet for talent.

We believe inclusivity and excellence in research, medical education, and clinical care are paramount to our success. As such, we strive to build a culture of inclusivity and excellence by facilitating and enabling the recruitment, training, and development of individuals who are underrepresented in medicine (URiM). In doing so we aim to become an incubator for world-class leadership in health equity research, medical education, and clinical care. Our core pillars are structured to address our multifaceted approach to help us achieve our vision.
