A Diverse Workplace
At University Hospitals, we are developing a workforce of health care professionals who reflect our diverse patient population. UH has recruited and developed a workforce of doctors, nurses and other personnel from diverse cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds. We have created several initiatives to enhance diversity at UH, including:
- The Edgar B. Jackson Jr., MD, Endowed Chair for Clinical Excellence and Diversity, the only endowed, permanent staff position in an academic medical center established to promote diversity of academic faculty.
- The Henry L. Meyer III KeyBank Faculty Minority Fellows Program, funded by the Key Foundation, helps transition postgraduate residents or fellows to full-time UH faculty positions.
- The David Satcher Clerkship, a national model for the recruitment of minority medical students created as an assurance that the diversity of future generations of health care leaders receives accurate representation, and as a pledge that the needs of the underserved and underrepresented ethnic communities will be met.
