Throughout each corner of our institution, teaching and learning is occurring. Faculty are training many of the best and brightest future health care professionals; whereas, students are gaining an enriching academic experience in a stimulating learning environment. Our Medical Center offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs and hires well-trained academicians with vast experiences from around the globe. Professionalism, mutual respect, critical thinking, and teamwork are embedded in curricula as students must be well prepared for working with and caring for patients from diverse backgrounds and different cultures.
In addition to offering education and training centered on culturally effective health care, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion develops strategies for diversifying UMMC's faculty, staff, and student body. The ODI collaborates with schools, departments, and programs to increase enrollment, recruitment and retention of diverse individuals who demonstrate academic excellence and those with unique talents and abilities which complement the academic setting.
