Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to representation of diverse backgrounds and cultures, and culturally sensitive care for our patients. In the area of trainee education, we follow a policy of openness, inclusion and diversity which includes resident and fellow recruitment. We are demonstrating our diversity with media interaction, news articles, podcasts and journal entries, which promote our inclusive and representative group. We will continue to work to maintain and grow inclusiveness, representation, and diversity, as well as reaching out to the community for ways to improve our service.

We recognize the recent traumas of social injustice and the evolving state of our nation and its people. We will continue to be at the forefront of inclusiveness, representation, equality and justice. Recognizing the value and strength inherent in our diverse population is the first of many steps to meet the goal of optimal health and community wellness.


OrthoReach is a new outreach and pipeline program. It is led by residents and designed to engage UiM students interested in learning more about Orthopaedic Surgery. We have partnered with the I Am Abel Foundation for virtual and in-person events that include sessions on reading x-rays, simulated patient scenarios, casting and splinting, and surgical skills.
