We are excited to accept applications to Washington University’s Leadership in Emergency Medicine Diversity Scholarship. We are proud to continue our partnership with the Washington University School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity Programs in this venture. We are strongly committed to promoting diversity, inclusion, and cultural sensitivity within our department and believe that doing so is critical to executing our mission of providing exemplary health care to all who are in need with efficiency and compassion. We seek all individuals who can bring their diverse experience not only to our program but to our patients and community as well. Examples of these types of diversity would include but are certainly not limited to: historically underrepresented groups in medicine, members of the LGBTQ community, those who may be socio-economically, or educationally disadvantaged, and any others whose backgrounds and experiences would bring the diversity described above.
