Our Commitment to Diversity

The UConn Department of Orthopedic Surgery, the UConn Musculoskeletal Institute, and the Orthopaedics Residency are committed to a culture of equity, inclusion, and diversity.

Our learners, employees, and patients should experience an environment free of harassment, sexual misconduct, and discrimination. We are dedicated to creating and nurturing an environment that is safe for all residents to learn and practice, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion. We will continue to promote an inclusive culture, which supports, encourages, and celebrates diversity and inclusion.

By actively working to recruit women and underrepresented minorities, we aim to help create a more diverse orthopedic workforce that better mirrors the communities we serve.
