  Our Philosophy

Diversity adds an essential ingredient to the educational process. To this end, the Office of Diversity Education and Research is dedicated to helping minority students enter the field of medicine as effective and empathetic medical professionals and role models who inspire young people of any background or heritage to pursue dreams and opportunities in health care. This will ensure a health-care workforce that is better equipped to provide culturally competent care to an increasingly diverse population. Students who attend SUNY Downstate will find themselves in a community that is vital, active, and engaged in improving the lives and opportunities of fellow students now, and in years to come.
