Diversity Statement

KCU-GMEC/ADCS-Orlando is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse and inclusive workforce of residents, faculty and staff, as well as creating an environment that fosters inclusiveness, mutual respect, and the appreciation of multiple perspectives. In this context, we are mindful of all aspects of human differences, such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, spiritual practice, geography, disability, career goals, and age. We feel it is critical that our trainees reflect the diversity of the patients we serve at Advanced Dermatology, the residents of the city of Oviedo, and the US population as a whole. As future physicians, residents must understand and embrace cultural diversity in order to be competent and successful in team-based healthcare delivery. This is achieved by nurturing the climate and culture of the program through professional development, education, policy, and practice. Our objective is to create a climate that fosters belonging, respect, and value for all and encourages engagement and connection throughout the institution.

We believe that diversity enhances the educational climate and that educational outcomes are directly improved as a result. Moreover, we believe that the constantly changing demographics locally and nationally make it imperative that the program create a workforce for the future that is capable of understanding, communicating, and providing care for individuals from the most varied backgrounds. In this way, diversity enhances creativity and thoughtfulness in our patient care and research, and serves as a catalyst for change ultimately resulting in greater health care equity and a reduction in health care disparities. This eventually leads to better solutions to the healthcare needs of the populations we serve.

We are extremely proud of all aspects of diversity represented by our current residents, faculty and staff, and we are committed both to increasing that diversity in the years to come and ensuring the success of our trainees who come from backgrounds currently underrepresented in medicine.
