Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The University of Pittsburgh Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine (PACCM) is committed to inclusion across race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, nation of origin, and ableness without exception. Equity, diversity, and inclusiveness are crucial to our missions in clinical care, education, and research as well as to the health and well-being of our faculty, trainees, staff and patients. We pledge to foster a culture of open-mindedness, compassion, and inclusiveness in all endeavors and expect our faculty and staff to uphold these values within all professional settings. Behaviors in conflict with this goal will not be tolerated. PACCM is committed to enacting policies and devoting resources to foster diversity in our clinical and research services and to create a work environment that promotes inclusion. We are equally committed to addressing any structural bias within our own organization and we will work towards promoting health equity through our clinical, educational, and research missions.
