- "New Jersey Medical School, located in Newark and part of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, is committed to educating humanistic, culturally competent future physicians. Our community fosters diversity in the medical profession and actively recruits students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine. The school’s longstanding history and the unique demographics within the city of Newark provide an educational experience designed to transform our students into the physician leaders of the future" (Source: https://www.rutgers.edu/academics/schools-and-colleges/new-jersey-medical-school). New Jersey Medical School was founded in 1954.
The school's Office of the Dean released a memo laying out their DEI policy, expressly "that diversity, equity, and inclusion enhances our ability as an academic community to foster innovation and excellence."
Previously called the Office of Special Programs, the Office for Diversity and Community Engagement engages in partnerships to "embrace and recognize the impact that diversity has on the educational experience of all students and on the delivery of culturally competent quality healthcare."
