the University of Colorado Internal Medicine Residency Program, we strive for
excellence. But what does excellence look like? We believe that a commitment to
diversity will enable us to achieve the highest standards of excellence in all domains.
Diversity within our Internal Medicine Residency program not only enriches our
resident physicians’ experiences, it improves the quality of patient care. We
strive to strengthen our program by recognizing that differences in race,
ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and spiritual practice are
crucial to developing competent physician leaders who will deliver quality
patient care with lasting impact on individuals and communities.
commitment to diversity extends beyond the Internal Medicine Residency Program
to the Department of Medicine and the School of Medicine. Dr. Ozzie Grenardo, Interim
Assistant Dean for Admissions and Director of Community Outreach and Admissions
along with Dr. Christine Nyquist, Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion
lead the way in developing a faculty, housestaff, and student body that best
reflects the patients for whom we care. The Internal Medicine Residency Program
is dedicated to supporting each resident in the pursuit of a successful and
meaningful career in healthcare.

in the term 'we' or 'us' and at the same time decreases those labeled 'you' or
'them' until that category has no one left in it.”
