  • ADEA’s Policy on Diversity and Inclusion

ADEA Board in September 2006 approved a new statement of Policy on Diversity and Inclusion that strongly endorses the continuous use of practices that achieve excellence through diversity and inclusion.

  • American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)

In January 2006, APTA’s Commission on Accreditation approved a policy that emphasizes the need for diversity among physical therapists. This action resulted from the reports of the Sullivan Commission (Missing Persons: Minorities in the Health Professions) and theInstitute of Medicine (In the Nation’s Compelling Interest).

Revised standard MS-8: Each medical school must develop programs or partnerships aimed at broadening diversity among qualified applicants for medical school admission.

Annotation: Because graduates of U.S. and Canadian medical schools may practice anywhere in their respective countries, it is expected that schools recognize their collective responsibility for contributing to the diversity of the profession as a

whole.

To that end, schools should work within their own universities and/or collaborate with other institutions to make admission to medical education programs more accessible to potential applicants of diverse backgrounds. Schools can accomplish that aim through a variety of approaches, including, but not limited to, the development and institutionalization of pipeline programs, collaborations with institutions that serve students from disadvantaged backgrounds, communityservice activities that heighten awareness of and interest in the profession, or academic enrichment programs for applicants who may not have taken traditional pre-- medical coursework.

New Standard IS-16: Each medicalschool must have policies and practices to achieve appropriate diversity among its students, faculty, staff, and other members of its academic community, and must engage in ongoing, systematic, and focused efforts to attract and retain students, faculty, staff, and others from demographically diverse backgrounds.

New Annotation: The LCME and CACMS believe that aspiring future physicians will be prepared for medical practice in a diverse society if they learn in an environment characterized by, and supportive of, diversity and inclusion. Such an environment will facilitate physician training in:

Basic principles of culturally competent health care

Recognition of health care disparities and the development of solutions to such burdens

The importance of meeting the health care needs of medically underserved populations

The development of core professional attributes, such as altruism and social accountability, needed to provide effective care in a multidimensionally diverse society…………..

Schools should establish focused, significant and sustained programs to recruit and retain suitably diverse students, faculty members, staff, and others.

Moving Forward

The Sullivan Alliance is seeking partners to expand its program into additional states.

  • The Alliance is also urging a variety of actions by our elected leaders in Washington, in the new Administration and in the new Congress, to increase the diversity of our nation’s health professions.
