As part of its commitment to high-impact education, UCLA Urology convened an important Grand Rounds session for faculty, residents, students and staff to examine the issue of racism and its destructive impact on medical professionals, patients and society in general. As a result of these presentations, the Department created a committee to direct meaningful change within the Department that will forward its commitment to equality.
