This website has been developed by a group of residents for whom minority identities (including sexuality, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, race, disability, country of origin, language, socioeconomic status, etc.) have affected our daily lives, clinical experiences, and comfort when seeking a training program. We would like to share some of the reasons that MGH/McLean has uniquely succeeded in providing a home for us!
A diverse community reflected in the residency program
In our mission to matter greatly to the universe of those who suffer psychiatric disorders, to understand all causes from biology to social determinants, and to minister to those who do suffer, in our communities and worldwide, we cannot succeed without being a diverse and inclusive family. To that end, it is essential to this department to expand the diversity of our training programs, our faculty and the populations here and internationally that we serve. ~Jerry Rosenbaum, Chief, Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital
Diversity is the richness of human differences. Inclusion is when everyone is valued, engaged, and feels connected. At Massachusetts General Hospital, we believe that because of diversity we will excel; through inclusion we will respect; focused on equity we will serve, heal, educate and innovate. ~Massachusetts General Hospital
