Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Wellness at Pre-Health Shadowing

DEIW Department Mission

Pre-Health Shadowing is dedicated to providing global access to shadowing, volunteering, and research opportunities. Our mission is rooted in fostering diversity, ensuring equitable pathways to healthcare careers. We prioritize an inclusive community, breaking down barriers and promoting wellness for all aspiring healthcare professionals.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

At Pre-Health Shadowing, we celebrate diversity as a cornerstone of excellence in healthcare. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment that values and respects individuals from all backgrounds. We believe that a diverse community enhances learning, enriches experiences, and contributes to the creation of future healthcare leaders who are culturally competent and compassionate. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is integral to our mission of providing equitable opportunities for all students pursuing careers in healthcare.

DEIW in Healthcare

In healthcare, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are not just ideals; they are fundamental to providing effective and compassionate care. Embracing diversity ensures a nuanced understanding of patients’ diverse needs, leading to more personalized and culturally competent healthcare. Equity in access to opportunities is crucial for cultivating a workforce that reflects the communities it serves. When DEI is not incorporated into care, it can lead to disparities, hinder patient-provider communication, and compromise overall healthcare quality. By prioritizing DEI, we foster a healthcare system that is not only just and inclusive but also delivers higher-quality care for everyone.

Projects

From engaging speaker series and mentorship programs to hands-on global health initiatives and collaborative research projects, our organization is dedicated to providing enriching experiences that transcend traditional boundaries. We will conduct interactive workshops addressing cultural competence in healthcare and host wellness retreats to nurture the holistic well-being of our students. In addition, our community outreach programs and health equity advocacy campaigns aim to make a positive impact beyond the classroom.
