Harnett Health recognizes the importance of being inclusive and respectful of the personal experiences and backgrounds of our patients and staff. Our mission is to promote diverse and culturally competent resident physicians and to support a culture that values diversity by:
- Recruiting the most qualified trainees with diverse backgrounds through local, regional and national events.
- Increasing mentorship opportunities to promote retention of qualified and diverse faculty and personnel
- Educating faculty and personnel in the principles of intrinsic bias and culture diversity
- Strengthening the hospital’s ties with under-represented community members through community outreach programs including a longitudinal didactic series encompassing all three Harnett Health GME programs.
