Committed to Diversity and Inclusion

“It's been very good not just for us to work with a diverse patient group but also for the patients themselves to be able to work with a diverse group of physicians.”
— Efren Diaz, Pediatrics Resident

At Stony Brook we celebrate diversity and seek to promote the inclusion of everyone in all our programs and interactions. Our faculty, students, support staff and patients represent a wide range of countries, cultures, socio-economic backgrounds and sexual identities, all which reflect and enhance our medical community and all those whom we serve. Learn more about the programs offered through the links below.

GME Inclusion and Diversity Committee – develops and strengthens support and opportunities for groups under-represented in medicine, and helps to create awareness and acceptance among all faculty, trainees and other personnel. The group is comprised of 5 subcommittees:

  • Recruitment and retention of URM trainees to our programs
  • Support of current URM in our programs
  • Education and awareness
