WVU Medicine is dedicated to establishing a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment dedicated to promoting excellence in care and leadership. We believe in nurturing a culture consistent with compassion, communication, commitment, and competence where all our patient population, employees, partners, and communities are free from discrimination, disparities, and inequities.

We celebrate and embrace the multiple dimensions and intersectionality of diversity that each member of our professional and local communities offers, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sex, sexual orientation, sexual identity, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, language, national origin, religious affiliation, spiritual practice, mental and physical ability/disability, trauma history, and age.

We are committed to achieving a climate of inclusion that respects and affirms diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We recognize that excellence in all aspects of training, research, and care delivery can only be achieved when all staff, community members, and patients experience authentic connection and engagement; feel supported; and are encouraged to participate and contribute to creating health equity.
