Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Mission

The University of Maryland Department of Emergency Medicine (UMEM) values diversity and strives to create an equitable and inclusive environment for all. It is critical to our mission to help reduce inequities in health care and emergency medicine through four pillars: recruitment of residency applicants, education, community engagement, and mentorship.
