Diversity and inclusion are core values that invigorate the UC Irvine School of Medicine's mission: Discover. Teach. Heal.
We are committed to recruiting, admitting and educating talented students — as well as hiring and promoting faculty and staff members — whose backgrounds reflect California’s rich ethnic and cultural diversity.
We embrace and celebrate differences of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, language, military service, disability and socio-economic status because they inform our world view and that of our medical students.
Our commitment also includes the recruitment and retention of faculty and senior administrative staff who represent our diverse communities.Learn more about the Office of Diversity and Inclusion ›
