The Endocrine Fellowship Program at Vanderbilt strives to represent the diversity of our country, and our great city of Nashville. We continue to reflect on our program and feel strongly that our program is better when we can learn from different perspectives within our group. We encourage applicants of all racial and ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientation and gender identities to apply. We also offer a "second look visit" for those who identify as under-represented minorities, to meet with the leaders of our Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion as well as faculty from around the Medical Center. Our House Staff Diversity and Inclusion Alliance, which was started in 2020, helps us to celebrate all types of diversity, provide education and events for house staff, and allow our fellows to connect with diversity groups at Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. We welcome you to reach out to us with questions.

VUMC Black Lives Day of Commitment

Sponsored by the Office for Diversity Affairs and the Department of Dermatology at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks, the event was held to honor lives lost to racism, provide information about the health disparities facing the African American community and to compel participants to commit to taking a stand against racism.



"Dixie Place Renamed in Honor of Surgical Pioneer, Vivien Thomas"

Through a Vanderbilt University School of Medicine student-led effort, Dixie Place, the city street that runs between the Medical Center's Central Garage and the Oxford House building on 21st Avenue South, is being renamed Vivien Thomas Way.
