Affirmative Action

It is the policy of ISMMS that all decisions regarding educational and employment opportunities and performance are made on the basis of merit and without discrimination because of race, gender, color, creed, age, religion, national origin, citizenship, disability, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, genetic predisposition, or any other characteristic protected by law. Sexual harassment is defined as a form of sex discrimination and, therefore, any sexual harassment at the school will constitute a violation of the medical school's nondiscrimination policy.

In keeping with these continuing efforts to achieve a broadening of the representation of women and minority groups throughout the medical school, the school has:

  • Developed an Affirmative Action Program, which details actions designed to realize the School's commitment to equal educational and employment opportunities.

  • Insured compliance with Federal, State and Local laws and regulations implementing equal opportunity objectives by meeting the spirit as well as the letter of the law and contractual requirements.

ISMMS is committeed to the realization of these goals. Every decision affecting faculty, house staff, fellows, graduate students, employees, and medical students and other members of the medical school community rests solely on demonstrably valid criteria of merit, competence and experience.
