Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

Family Medicine Residents

The Family Medicine Residency Program at the University of Connecticut is committed to enhancing the recruitment, retention, and professional development of underrepresented groups. As our population becomes more ethically and racially diverse, we continue to work towards building a program that reflects the diversity of our surrounding communities. Through mentorship and educational initiatives, our program strives to provide its residents with the tools necessary to deliver compassionate and culturally competent care.
