Faculty Diversity

We at NJMS recognize that diversity enhances our ability as a diverse academic community to foster innovation and excellence. NJMS has a longstanding tradition of commitment to diversity and has fostered a spirit of inclusiveness for its highly diverse faculty, staff, and students.  The diversity of our nation, combined with a shortage of individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds in the health professions, presents a significant challenge for medical education and academic medicine. We at NJMS are resolutely responding to the need for a diverse healthcare workforce that meets the diverse needs of today's patients. 

The Office of Faculty Affairs recognizes that diversity enhances our ability as an academic community to foster innovation and excellence. Diversity creates and cultivates the optimal learning environment for our students and trainees and establishes a spirit of inclusiveness. This enhances NJMS' effort to respond to the need for a diverse healthcare workforce that addresses the diversity of today's patients
