Congratulations to the Neurology Diversity and Inclusion Council!

Our Neurology Diversity and Inclusion Council’s accomplishments and initiatives were selected as a finalist for the GME IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access) Champion Award.

The award honors the most innovative and exemplary initiatives that drive diversity in GME. The award recognizes:

  • Innovation and excellence to identify and guide pre-resident learners into the field of medicine and biomedical research
  • Projects that address increasing recruitment and retention of diverse underrepresented residents, fellows, faculty members, and GME staff members
  • Efforts to promote inclusivity in the clinical learning environment

This award celebrates initiatives in which diverse learners are developed, diverse faculties are constructed, and the GME community embraces differences and highlights them as examples of what is achievable. The award recognizes ACGME-accredited Sponsoring Institutions and programs, as well as specialty organizations working to diversify the underrepresented physician workforce and create inclusive workplaces that foster humane, civil, and equitable environments.
