Diverse, engaged, faculty, staff and trainees are critical to the success of the Department of Medicine and represent its most valuable resource. The Department Chair, Division Chiefs and all leaders are committed to creating a supportive environment where each member of the Department can reach their greatest potential. We are dedicated to achieving this goal by ensuring a culture that promotes inclusion, diversity, equity and antiracism and fosters career development and academic success for all individuals.

We explicitly recognize the importance of faculty, staff and trainees pursuing excellence in different aspects of the Department’s tripartite mission: providing the highest quality, patient-centered clinical care; performing innovative basic, clinical and translational biomedical research that will lead to improvements in human health; and providing exceptional education and training for physicians and scientists. 

We are committed to recognizing faculty, staff and trainees across broad and diverse disciplines who provide exceptional scholarship and service to Washington University and our community. Together we will consistently promote the highest degree of professionalism and integrity and ensure that all of our interactions with colleagues, trainees, patients, and staff demonstrate mutual respect, support, and compassion.
