Last year, UCSF School of Medicine's commitment to building the most equitable, inclusive medical school nationally was formalized with the launch of Differences Matter, a five-year, multimillion dollar initiative supported by the School of Medicine Dean’s Office.
“We want to ensure that people with identities that are diverse in race and ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, economics status, religion, and disability not only survive but thrive in our School,” says Catherine Lucey, MD, Executive Vice Dean, Vice Dean for Education.

“Differences Matter expands ongoing and previous initiatives with a substantial investment that promises to elevate the issues and support the sustainability necessary to change systems and patterns of how we do things,” says Dr. Renee Navarro, UCSF Vice Chancellor of Diversity and Outreach.
