Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity

The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry is committed to providing a welcoming and accommodating environment for all. We recognize that diversity is a source of strength that promotes a culture of excellence, innovation, flexibility and adaptability that thrives from the contributions of all our members. We accept, value, nurture and celebrate diversity.

Diversity in our learning environments allows for a rich educational experience and propels innovation in clinical care and research by developing culturally competent future physicians, dentists, researchers, and health care leaders. Given Canada’s social fabric, diversity in our classrooms ensures ongoing health care excellence at a national level.

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry identifies the following diversity categories which are under-represented within health care environments:

  • Females
  • Indigenous populations
  • Rural communities
  • Lower socioeconomic status

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry is committed to outreach and recruitment activities, as there remains much work to be done to ensure applicants from these groups are well-represented as future physicians and dentists.
