Recruiting for a Diverse Workforce

The mission of NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine is to develop preeminent physician leaders and a diverse workforce through scholarship and innovative medical education design anchored by the principles of primary care and health systems science.

Our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) works closely with the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid to foster and implement proactive recruitment practices, including virtual meetings with applicants about our innovative programs and efforts. We also support a wide range of services, activities, and professional development opportunities.

MD Student Recruitment

We seek to enroll medical students of diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives who demonstrate a commitment to future practice in the primary care disciplines of internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and general surgery. Learn more about our holistic approach to our admissions process.

Residency, Fellow, Faculty, and Leadership Recruitment

We bolster diversity at residency, fellow, faculty, and leadership levels by actively recruiting individuals from groups that are underrepresented in medicine and encouraging them to apply for employment. Our aim is to attract and retain talent that reflects the rich diversity of our communities and the patients we serve.

Our Graduate Medical Education Diversity Committee provides individual programs with best-practice strategies for promoting DEI in recruitment. Diversity awareness and institutional goals are discussed regularly with department chairs and program leadership.

As important, regular training sessions are conducted to mitigate the effects of unconscious bias in the evaluation and selection of candidates and to better understand and appreciate the diverse backgrounds of our students, residents, fellows, faculty, and leadership.
