Pitt Office of Diversity and Inclusion
UPMC Center for Engagement Inclusion
The UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion is comprised of a robust staff devoted to advancing the organization’s Diversity and Inclusion Agenda. Diversity Directors, Employee Resource Groups, a Committee of UPMC Board of Directors dedicated to Diversity and Inclusion, and a full diversity and inclusion staff comprise the core infrastructure that supports the implementation of our diversity strategy.
Pitt School of Medicine DEI Employee Resource Groups
The Coalition of Residents and Fellows of Color (C-ROC) mission is to positively influence the training environment and to increase recruitment and engagement of all residents and fellows of color. C-ROC accomplishes their objectives by:
- Driving organizational initiatives that maximize the engagement and recruitment of residents and fellows of color.
- Building an internal support system and community for residents and fellows.
- Creating a more inclusive training environment through increasing awareness and providing education.
- Supporting UPMC's efforts to attract and retain the best talent.
The Physician Inclusion Council at UPMC and Pitt (PICUP) serves as a core component of our physician diversity infrastructure charged with developing strategies to recruit, retain, and promote the professional success and advancement of diverse physicians, especially those who are under-represented minorities within UPMC and Pitt School of Medicine.

APSA at PittMed Advocacy Committee
The mission of the Local Chapter of the American Physician Scientist Association at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (APSA at PittMed) is to bring together the various physician-scientist training routes at our institution, create a networking platform across different levels of training, and increase the presence of Pitt physician-scientists within the local, regional, and national community.
The APSA at PittMed Advocacy Committee is hosting a 21-Month Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge inspired by the 21 Day Challenge created by the ABA. This monthly discussion seminar is for people in medicine and science to attend. Our goal with this discussion series is to offer a monthly place for trainees and faculty members to come together to continue the discussion around racial inequity and continue educating ourselves on the perspectives of people of color.
