August 2017 Statement of Inclusivity
August 2017 Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation statement of inclusivity:
We, as providers of rehabilitative care and educators of future physiatrists, uphold the right of all people to receive care in an environment that is free of fear, intimidation, harassment, and discrimination. Our clinics are safe places for all of our patients, regardless of impairment, disability, age, race, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation. Compassionate care is the hallmark of all we do. We value, embrace and encourage diversity among our staff, residents and students. We reject hate and intolerance as contrary to our core values. Our diversity makes us better physicians who are more capable to bring the best possible and safest care to our patients.
