Our Statement on Diversity

The UNC Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery recognizes and values all people and the differences of all people, and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all our faculty, staff, and patients to experience. We are not blind to the injustices that many of our minority community face outside of the hospital and we are here to stand with you and advocate for you within our department. We do not stand for discrimination of any individual of any kind, whether for race, ethnicity, religion, disability status, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Our department is created of equals, working together to make people’s lives better. Together we can support each other beyond diagnoses through empathy, communication, and compassion.

The University of North Carolina School of Medicine and the UNC Medical Center are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that enhances our learning environment, innovative research, and the quality of care available to all. We believe that a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion leads to new ways of thinking, behaving and caring.

We embrace the Association of American Medical Colleges’ (AAMC) definition of diversity, including the recognition that diversity is not limited to gender, race and ethnicity, but must also include age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious commitment, physical ability and other varied backgrounds and life experiences.

Together, the UNC School of Medicine and the UNC Medical Center strive to recruit, retain, and develop a diverse group of individuals to ensure a vibrant community that promotes excellence in education, discovery, clinical care and the elimination of health disparities locally, regionally and nationally.
