Health Care Leaders Unite for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policies in Medicine

Enhancing Health Through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Health Care Leaders Unite for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policies in Medicine

A coalition of leading health care and medical associations, including the ACCME, ACGME, ABMS, AMA, AOA, AAMC, CMSS, NBME, NBOME and NRMP, have come together to voice their support for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) policies in health care. This unified statement underscores the importance of addressing systemic inequities in the healthcare system to ultimately improve patient outcomes across the nation.

By advocating for DEI initiatives, these organizations aim to ensure that physicians from diverse backgrounds are equipped with the tools and resources necessary to provide high-quality care to all patients. The longstanding disparities within the healthcare system must be addressed in order to create a more inclusive and accessible profession that better serves the needs of all individuals.

The coalition recognizes the critical role that physicians play in shaping the health and well-being of communities. They emphasize the importance of fostering a physician workforce that is capable of delivering holistic care to a diverse patient population. By prioritizing inclusive excellence, these organizations are committed to driving positive outcomes for both their members and the patients they serve.
