The psychiatry training programs at Vanderbilt greatly value diversity. Our program seeks to foster an environment that is inclusive and supportive of racial, ethnic, religious and cultural diversity; disabilities; and gender, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. In addition to diversity initiatives in the department of psychiatry, Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine’s Office for Diversity Affairs (https://medschool.vanderbilt.edu/diversity/welcome) and the Office for Diversity in House Staff and Faculty Affairs offer a range of programs and interest groups that support diversity in student groups and across the whole of the medical school, residency, and fellowship experiences.
