Diversity Statement
Diversity, equity and inclusion are critical to the healthcare systems and training programs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) and the OKC VA. Therefore, we strive to create a learning community where residents and faculty of all backgrounds feel welcome and supported.

Residents are provided with exposure to training opportunities within a diverse patient population and settings. The residency emphasizes cultural diversity in all aspects of the training program. In addition to the focus on diversity within clinical, research, didactic, and supervisory experiences within the residency, a Cultural Diversity Committee offers additional input into this crucial area of training. Opportunities exist for trainees to participate on this committee with faculty, which allows for direct input on the goals of diversity-informed programming, didactics and other training experiences that may be offered during the year.
