Our Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) is committed to building an environment where all students, faculty, and staff from varying backgrounds and life experiences are fully engaged and feel a strong sense of belonging and achievement. The Multicultural Resource Center and the IDEALS office help us further this commitment.
As an academic medical center, it is our responsibility to train and mentor future clinicians and scientists who reflect, understand and appreciate diversity. We live in an aging and diversifying nation where disparities can limit healthcare access and lead to disproportionately poor outcomes. Addressing health disparities, improving community health, and leading efforts to eliminate health inequalities are essential to the School of Medicine and Duke Health's mission. The Duke University School of Medicine works to attract and retain a diverse cadre of outstanding talent who positively impact how we teach, and learn and serve in an increasingly diverse world.
- Wellness Resources & Support Services: All students in the Duke University School of Medicine have access to a number of well-being, mental, physical and mindful services and resources. Find help or learn more about how to reach out.
- Reporting Mistreatment & Misconduct: Students are encouraged to report mistreatment that occurs in their courses and in their clinical education.
- Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) works to achieve and deliver a culturally competent medical education.
