We are the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta, one of the world’s elite academic health sciences centres, where top students are taught by award-winning educators and mentored by renowned scientists in a dynamic learning environment.
We conduct our teaching, research and patient care in accordance with the highest international standards. We work with our partners in education, research and health care for the greater good of the local, regional and global community.
Outstanding areas of medical research at the University of Alberta include diabetes, obesity, virology, heart disease, motor control and rehabilitation, protein structure and function, and transplantation.
The office of the Assistant Dean of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) works to identify and promote practices and principles that celebrate the strengths in difference and ensures equitable opportunities in employment, health sciences education and delivery of care.
At the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry (FoMD), we want to go beyond defining and understanding the main pillars that build EDI; instead, we live them every day. Since 2017, we have positioned ourselves as institutional leaders with vision and practice at the University of Alberta.
We are proud to present the progress of these pillars in our daily practice, aligned with the main themes of the University of Alberta’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Strategic Plan. We invite you to learn what we are doing and join us in advancing an exciting plan for the near future.
