Ensuring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Within the Department of Psychiatry


The Department of Psychiatry is training students, residents, and fellows on the issues of social justice and diversity and working toward the elimination of race-based discrepancies in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within Mount Sinai’s Department of Psychiatry goes well beyond the reinforcement of the Mount Sinai Health System’s core institutional values. Working closely with the Health System’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), the Department’s 40-member DEI Steering Committee stands as a tailored, psychiatry specific initiative to foster fundamental improvement and change in a field whose past shortcomings have been top of mind among faculty in recent years.
