Actions Taken

Admissions Policies
  • A 2019 school document titled "Policy on Diversity and Inclusion" states that "A medical school has effective policies and practices in place, and engages in ongoing, systematic, and focused recruitment and retention activities, to achieve mission-appropriate diversity outcomes among its students, faculty, senior administrative staff, and other relevant members of its academic community."
Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • The school's Office of Students & Diversity states that its "staff participates in regular training sessions, as recommended by the Association of American Medical Colleges, to mitigate unconscious bias and to better understand and appreciate the diverse backgrounds of our students and their colleagues."
  • The school's Department of Emergency Medicine states, "Implicit bias and antiracism training, Healthcare Equity Grand Rounds, and targeted journal clubs help our department facilitate important discussions, identify areas for improvement, and guide evolving practices to ensure that our training programs serve the needs of all learners."
Symbolic Actions
  • On August 6, 2021, NYU Langone Health News published an article titled "Diversity Defines White Coat Ceremony at NYU Long Island School of Medicine," which reported on a new oath taken by NYU Long Island School of Medicine students. The oath states in part, "'I will appreciate the complexity, diversity, and needs of each individual, and exercise empathy, compassion, and patience, to recognize biases, and treat all lives with equal dignity and respect'.”
  • On June 30, 2023, the school signed on to the Associated Medical Schools of New York (AMSNY) statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision regarding race-conscious admission policies, which stated the following: "The consortium of the 17 medical schools of New York State, is profoundly concerned that the United State Supreme Court decisions in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina will diminish opportunities for talented students pursuing careers in medicine and science. These decisions reject a longstanding precedent that recognized the compelling interest of ensuring diversity in higher education and may undermine recent advances to address inequities in medical education and research."
