Mission Statement

Tufts University School of Medicine embraces diversity in the broadest form, including racial, ethnic, religious socioeconomic, geographic diversity, as well as diversity in gender and sexual orientation.

We believe that a diverse student body is essential for the creation of a teaching and learning environment that promotes excellence, quality and equity as core values among our future physicians, scientists and public health advocates, a workforce equipped with the knowledge and skill needed to address the range of health challenges facing our increasingly diverse patient population and their communities.

To this end, TUSM is committed to pursuing initiatives that will diversify the applicant pool and improve the selection process in order to create the most diverse student body.
