The University of Cincinnati is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). As part of a joint effort to increase diversity in healthcare, the University of Cincinnati Department of Anesthesiology formed a DEI committee in 2021. We welcome individuals
of all races, ethnicities, sexual and gender identities, religions, and abilities. Our department is committed to recruiting and retaining faculty, residents, and staff so that our department reflects the Cincinnati population we serve.
DEI Committee Members
Embracing our differences to impact change.
To utilize our understanding of diversity and inclusion to foster open dialogue about biases in medicine and how to address and evoke change as it pertains to healthcare disparities.
The University of Cincinnati as an institution is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. Not only do we understand the importance of producing physicians that mirror our Cincinnati community in which we serve, we have developed a number of initiatives
to help medical students offset some of the barriers which accompany medical training.
The program has committed to sponsoring up to 12 funded visiting clerkship positions. This program will provide a stipend up to $1500, to help defray the cost of an 4-week clinical away rotation, to 4th year medical students attending a U.S. medical school.
We encourage you to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
We are excited at the opportunity to get to know you!

As part of our efforts to increase diversity in our department, we invite any applicant who identifies as underrepresented in medicine to schedule a one-on-one meeting with a resident who also identifies as URM. We hope this provides applicants a safe
space to ask questions about the culture of Cincinnati and our program.
All applicants who have a scheduled interview will receive an email from our DEI resident chair, Melanie Russell on how to schedule the one-on-one meeting.
