Diversity and Inclusion

 

The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology at NYU Langone Medical Center is committed to providing a diverse and inclusive environment for our workforce, whether they are performing direct patient care, conducting research, or providing administrative support. With a history dating back to 1872, our department is recognized as a leader and vital contributor to the field of dermatology as well as a national and international referral center for skin diseases, and we are especially interested in fostering diversity in our trainees and faculty. We believe this diversity is an important contributor to the continued success of our department. As we participate in the care of tens of thousands of patients each year, we strive to create a provider population that reflects the diversity of our patient population and of the communities we serve.

In support of this effort, the Department also allocates funds on a yearly basis to third and fourth year medical students from groups underrepresented in medicine as defined by the AAMC who are interested in completing a dermatology elective at NYU.
