Diversity and Disability Resources

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (UPSOM) is committed to diversity and inclusion. At UPSOM, diversity encompasses all dimensions of race, physical ability, ethnicity, language, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, social and economic status, age, religion, and experience. Since 1967, the UPSOM has sustained a strategic emphasis on increasing the participation of U.S. underrepresented minorities in clinical medicine, biomedical research, teaching, and service. Accordingly, programs, initiatives, and areas of focus have been developed to implement that commitment and maximize the benefits of diversity and inclusion.
