EDI Initiatives

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the UCLA Neurosurgery Department

Mission Statement

The UCLA Department of Neurosurgery is dedicated to fostering a culture of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) to enhance the quality of our education, research, and patient care. Our mission is to inspire the next generation of diverse neuroscientists and healthcare professionals through strategic partnerships, mentorship programs, and community engagement initiatives. We strive to break down barriers and create opportunities for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds, celebrating the achievements of our faculty, and nurturing the growth of an inclusive, supportive environment for all.

We are committed to advancing equity by acknowledging the unique experiences and perspectives of our diverse community, promoting a culture of open dialogue, and supporting the professional development of all members. Through our collaborative efforts, we endeavor to drive innovation, excellence, and leadership in neurosurgery, while uplifting the voices of those who have historically been underrepresented in the field.
