Equity, Quality, and Inclusion in Trauma Surgery Practice Committee

The Committee will strive to foster leaders who will tackle issues of inequity experienced by medical students, surgical trainees, and trauma surgeons; to advocate for knowledge exchange pertaining to the impact of discrimination on the efficiency of the healthcare system and the wellbeing of our healthcare personnel; to harbor discussions and forums that will stimulate investigation and teaching of the effective methods for promoting equity and inclusion in the workplace and society at large; to encourage tailored mentorships for underrepresented groups that will in turn nurture a sense of community for personal professional growth; to collaborate with our stakeholders to adequately serve our communities to achieve health justice and subsequently better patient care and outcomes; and to engage in lawful activities reasonably related to matters of equity, diversity, and inclusion that may incidentally emerge.
