We believe that a learning environment with greater representation of persons with diverse backgrounds fosters innovation and a deeper appreciation for the diversity of our learners, colleagues, and patients. All residents are trained in cultural humility and antibias/antiracism through a dedicated lecture series. Trainees also have the opportunity to receive more advanced training in DEI through the clinician educator track, diversity committee, or the Multicultural Physicians' Alliance. The iDREAM Residents Scholar Program is a program offered to underrepresented residents in medicine to help launch their careers in academic medicine.

Women in Residency

Women in Residency was created to provide support, networking, leadership, and mentorship opportunities for trainees with particular emphasis on supporting the women who match to IU and retain them as faculty. Teamed with the department of medicine's women in medicine group, this group aims to build camaraderie amongst trainees as well as faculty. Many specialties also have women in medicine groups including women in cardiology, women in hematology/ oncology, and others in the works.
