The Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV strives to attract and support individuals from groups historically underrepresented in medicine. Our institutional leadership is dedicated to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential pillars of our climate and culture. This is evidenced by collaborative efforts between the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the offices of Admissions and Student Affairs, Community Engagement, Faculty Affairs, and Human Resources to maintain an inclusive and respectful environment for all members of our academic community.
We aspire to achieve diversity among our students, faculty, staff, and leadership that is reflective of Southern Nevada and we celebrate a culture of inclusion where all members of our medical community are welcomed, respected, and heard. We honor those devoted to increasing health equity and providing care to all in the context of cultural humility. As an academic medical center, it is our privilege and responsibility to train and mentor future healthcare providers who will understand, appreciate, and advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion and are well-positioned to provide the best care to all people.
