Welcome to the Office of Multicultural Affairs. The mission of this office is to promote equality and provide the knowledge and skill necessary for all our future physicians, public health professionals, physician assistants, and biomedical scientists to succeed and prosper. Within this office, we provide tools and opportunities to promote and assist in the success of our students. 

Tufts University School of Medicine and the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences have a strong history of recruiting and graduating traditionally underrepresented minority students. Our student body reflects a culturally and ethnically diverse population, with half of our students describing themselves as non-white. We support our students with a variety of programs, initiatives and training programs.

The Pipeline Programs at TUSM and Sackler uniquely serve to increase minority students' interest in and inspire young people to consider the fields of medicine, biomedical sciences, and health professions.
