An inclusive workforce and clinical learning environment help us continuously improve patient care and strengthen our research contributions to medical science.

Health Equity Priorities at Penn

  • Increase the collection, stratification and use of race, ethnicity, language preference and other sociodemographic data to improve quality and safety
  • Increase cultural competency training to ensure culturally responsive care, improve and strengthen community partnerships
  • Advance diversity in leadership and governance to reflect the communities served; and
  • Improve and strengthen community partnerships
