Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Statement
The Pediatric Hospital Medicine program at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria commits to ensuring a diversity of cultures, races and ethnicities, gender, religious beliefs, learning differences, sexual orientations and identities for our trainees, faculty, staff, and families.
Our mission is not only to support but to advocate for and be the agents of change against structural racism for those individuals who identify as underrepresented in our in our society and in medicine.
We are committed to being an inclusive environment that does not tolerate any form of racism, discrimination, mistreatment, or bias.
Our goal is to equip our fellows with the skills to engage in anti-racist practices, to provide equitable and high-quality care to children and advocate for themselves and their colleagues.
