Established in 2000, the NYU Department of Internal Medicine Organization for Nurturing Diversity (DIMOND) promotes diversity among faculty and residents while facilitating their personal and professional growth. It was created by faculty and house staff to enrich the cultural and academic atmosphere at NYU Langone and NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
Working in a diverse environment benefits our residents by building social awareness and the skills needed to provide culturally competent care for an ethnically and socioeconomically diverse patient population.
The DIMOND program promotes cultural diversity within the Department of Medicine, actively recruits minority faculty and house staff, encourages continued faculty development and mentorship, and works with other local and national organizations to address multicultural and minority health issues.
