CUSM-SOM embraces a culture in which everyone is valued regardless of age, race, ethnicity, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion, socioeconomic status, and geographic origins.

CUSM-SOM leadership acknowledges the acute need to remove barriers to the recruitment, retention, and advancement of the historically underrepresented, marginalized populations. The innovative clinical presentation curriculum emphasizes public health, population health, global health and affordable, accessible care for all. The training of culturally competent healthcare providers requires a multicultural milieu in which diversity is deeply valued and encouraged.
