Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Diversity and Inclusion

The Perelman School of Medicine appointed Dr. Helen O. Dickens as Associate Dean for Minority Affairs thereby making her the first in the country. Under her leadership, the Office for Minority Affairs was established in 1968 to recruit and retain minority students who are underrepresented in medicine. Diversity and Inclusion preserves this commitment. We welcome you to our web site to learn about our students, our school and our recruitment efforts.
