GME Diversity Days

UVA passionately believes that a diverse housestaff encourages empathy and compassion within the hospital and well as the greater Charlottesville community. We seek a racially, ethnically, and gender-diverse intern class for 2020. In the wake of the white supremacist rally in August 2017, we recognize that applicants might have questions about the environment regarding diversity and inclusion at UVA. The Graduate Medical Education Committee is sponsoring Diversity Days throughout the interview season. During this half day event there will be presentations by:

  • School of Medicine faculty about diversity goals and initiatives underway at UVA
  • Resident representatives from the Housestaff Council for Diversity and Inclusion (HCDI)

and ample time to meet and chat with current Housestaff from multiple specialties in an informal and relaxed setting.

We will publish a link to the GME Diversity Days webpage as soon as it is posted. For anyone who cannot attend, please know there are many housestaff and faculty eager to discuss diversity and inclusion with you during whichever interview day you select.
