Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Henry Ford Health is committed to being a trusted leader in our community, acting as the example for equity and justice in healthcare, education, and research. The health system holds four core values in the domain of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice:

  1. Anti-Racism and Social Justice Advocacy
  2. Diverse Workforce and Inclusive Culture
  3. Community Empowerment
  4. Healthcare Equity

As a member of the Henry Ford Health community, our Orthopaedic Surgery Residency is committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming training program, respecting and valuing the contributions of diverse faculty, trainees, staff, and patients to achieve excellence in patient care, education, and research. We acknowledge the importance of a diverse and equitable workforce and strive toward healthcare justice and equity for our diverse patient populations. We also acknowledge that our specialty of orthopaedic surgery stands far behind our peers in developing a future generation of diverse surgeons.

In working to create this future generation, our training program starts with a resident recruitment process that emphasizes holistic review of every application, seeking to find the unique attributes that can make future residents into productive allies in this endeavor. During training, our residents have numerous opportunities to provide care to underserved populations, receive formal education in healthcare equity, and participate in service projects to benefit our community.
