No matter where we’re from, what language we speak, or our economic status, we all need health care. One of the most rewarding aspects of your career will be working with patients of all cultures and backgrounds.

The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry (URSMD) is committed to increasing the number of physicians with diverse backgrounds and those who demonstrate a vision and commitment to improving the health status of diverse patient populations via patient care, research and/or teaching. As a result, OMSIEP was established to continue to broaden the scope of medical education beyond the classroom to include health, culture, and educational experiences with the goal of creating cross-culturally humble physicians. OMSIEP serves as a resource to bridge URSMD with local, national, and international communities.
