Study with us

An inclusive, open and diverse community is essential to excellence in training and fosters voices that have been ignored or discouraged.

To address the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences commitment to equity, access and participation, and in recognition of the under-representation of members of historically and currently excluded groups - led by our Office of Anti-Racism, we take proactive measures throughout our residency admissions process striving for diversity and cultural safety.

This includes implicit bias training for all interview panels and prioritizing self-identified Indigenous applicants for interview.

We encourage you to self-identify any aspect of diversity in your cover letter, noting disclosure is of course, completely optional.
