Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to creating an environment that is inclusive of all people. We are committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce that reflects the patient population we serve. We aim to seek applicants with diversity in religion, race, ethnicity, gender, background, and orientation. As an institution, we acknowledge the importance of creating an environment and workforce centered upon a common goal: improving the health of our community including our patients and their loved ones.

Our Emergency Department strives to maintain an environment of tolerance and inclusion, where trainees and faculty of various backgrounds are accepted within our Baystate family. In light of the current injustices in the world, our department has committed to consistently engage in open dialogue regarding health inequities, bias, and cultural competence. We incorporate open dialogue in our journal clubs, didactics and foster an open environment with diverse thoughts and people. The department is committed to addressing health disparities through scholarly work and multidisciplinary collaboration within our institution.

Our Residency is actively recruiting applicants from diverse backgrounds and students who are traditionally underrepresented in medicine. We have a zero tolerance policy for discrimination and will continue to foster a culturally sensitive environment for all residents.
