Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

The MD Program, the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, and the entire University of Alberta community value and uphold the principles of academic integrity.

The University of Alberta is committed to creating work and learning communities that inspire and enable all people to reach their full potential. "We value diversity, inclusivity, and equity across and among our people, campuses and disciplines." (For the Public Good).

We define equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) as the following:

Equity - Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed at educational and employment endeavours within the academy.

Diversity - Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human and institutional differences and recognizing diverse talents to advance institutional excellence.

Inclusion - Inclusion is the active engagement of diversity and equity. Access goes beyond physical accessibility to include principles of universal design in all aspects of the University's operations.

The Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry is committed to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion. More information, including useful resources for faculty, staff, and students can be found on the website for the Faculty's Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
