Diversity and Inclusion

The Connecticut Children’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee is comprised of residents, fellows, attending faculty and hospital staff who are focused on expanding the diversity and inclusion within the Pediatric Residency Program to include participants from groups underrepresented in medicine (URM), and to become more representative of the populations we serve. In doing so, we hope to increase interest of URM applicants to our residency program, create an environment where URM residents feel supported and provide our patients with physician role-models. Our Program has selected URM interview dates with a special meet and greet with our URM residents, fellows, and faculty. We also support medical students to complete a rotation with us and learn more about our program. Application information can be found on the VESUM page.

We look forward to meeting you.
