Diversity

Rutgers NJMS has a tradition of commitment to diversity and has fostered a spirit of inclusiveness for its highly diverse community, faculty, staff, and students.  Our mission is to develop individuals underrepresented in medicine and other health professions, as well as to champion cultural competency, community service, and humanism in all aspects of medical education.  We at NJMS are resolutely responding to the need for a diverse healthcare workforce that resembles the diversity of today’s patients. For further details of institutional efforts related to diversity please visit our Office for Diversity & Community Engagement.

Our residency program and department is not only supportive of these institutional efforts, but is an institutional and specialty leader in these. Our residency is comprised of over 50% women and 29% URiM, while our department has over 50% women faculty members and 22% URiM. Below are our resident and faculty profiles in diversity.
