UW Medicine is committed to fostering and sustaining a working, learning, and healing environment that is diverse, equitable and welcoming of all people.  Fostering and sustaining this institutional culture is essential to fulfilling the core mission of UW Medicine to improve the health and wellbeing of the peoples and communities in our region and nation.  To this end, the UW Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs, in collaboration with our institutional partners, aims to provide tools and resources necessary to enhance excellence through diversity and to build and retain a more inclusive faculty.

The School of Medicine acknowledges and honors that the University stands on the unceded land of the Coast Salish peoples, land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Duwamish, Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations.


Resources to Support a More Inclusive Environment

UW Medicine Bias Reporting Tool

UW Medicine is a community where support and respect are expected at all levels. This tool was created for any member of the UW Medicine community to formally report incidents of racism, bullying, and other negative biases ranging from one-time micro-aggressions to more severe and sustained behavior.

Resources include the Healthcare Equity Toolkit to support and guide UW Medicine leaders and staff in our effort to embrace diversity, foster inclusion and advance equity for our patients and workforce, and Healthcare Equity Blueprint to help reduce disparities in healthcare delivery.

Transgender and Gender Non-Binary (TGNB) Care

Our goal is to address the healthcare disparities for this community by creating a patient-centered and gender-affirming environment across the UW Medicine network.  The TGNB Health Program creates an integrated approach to ensure and coordinate access to primary care, behavioral health, and specialty care.


The Center for Leadership and Innovation in Medical Education (CLIME) has a series of podcasts to advance health equity and justice in medical education. Topics include bias reduction curricular content, anti-ableism and disability allyship, and humanizing the classroom.
