University of Colorado School of Medicine along with the Departments of
Internal Medicine and Pediatrics offer residents, students, and clinicians
several opportunities to get involved in efforts to address topics related to
diversity and inclusion both on and off the Anschutz Medical Campus. Our
Med-Peds program is committed to creating a residency program that promotes
diversity and addresses the important topics related to bias and discrimination
in medicine. Many of our residents, including Carolina Gutierrez, Claudia
Douglas, and Helena Villalobos are active members in both departments.
As a Med-Peds program we
are continuously looking for ways to make our campus and workplace more diverse
and inclusive. One of our initiatives is to have all residents and
Med-Peds faculty participate in an implicit bias training and take part in Med-Peds
diversity and inclusion lecture series. Throughout the year we also offer
residents and faculty additional trainings related to transgender health care.
Denver Health is a LGBTQ Center of Excellence and many
of our residents have participated in the various trainings on campus.
We participate in the SNMA
and LMSA conferences every year representing all 3 departments.
