In conjunction with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Heersink School of Medicine, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery believes diversity, equity, and inclusion strengthen our mission and vision. We are dedicated to making the department a place where people of varied backgrounds can feel at home. We renounce discrimination and promote a diverse and inclusive environment for all patients, employees, and trainees. 

The department is committed to maintaining core values that foster collaboration and enrich academic medicine with respect and inclusivity. 



Confront our own unconscious biases and pave a way for better communication and partnership.


Cultivate an environment where differences and diverse perspectives are celebrated.


Actively seek diversity in recruitment of faculty, staff and trainees.

We encourage you to visit the UAB Heersink School of Medicine Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the UAB Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion websites for many resources and tools.
