Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The New Jersey Chapter of the American College of Physicians encourages all the efforts made toward the promotion of diversity and inclusion for its members and the patients they serve.
The New Jersey Chapter of the American College of Physicians values diversity and is enthusiastic about recruiting Chapter membership that comprises a diverse population of internists, subspecialists of internal medicine, residents, and medical students. We welcome prospective members without regard to age, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, pregnancy, genetic information, gender identity, national origin, parental status, family medical history, handicap or disability, geographic location, military status, political affiliation, professional affiliation (e.g., private practice, research, or academic medicine) or any non-merit based factor.
The New Jersey Chapter of the American College of Physicians aims to seek diversity not only in its membership, but also its Leadership, Council committees, local and national award nominations, Fellowship nominations, Mastership nominations, local and national advocacy/resolution activities, and all CME and professional development activities.
The New Jersey Chapter also seeks to focus its work on Community projects that reach diverse communities in response to community needs and to heighten an awareness of health care disparities through its educational efforts.
