Diversity & Inclusion

Mission: The UT Southwestern Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management fundamentally seeks to produce world-class clinical care, outstanding education, and novel research in the realms of perioperative, peripartum, and pain medicine. Integral to these goals is our desire to partner with and support our surgical, interventional, and obstetric colleagues. In the same spirit we seek to facilitate the success of our hospitals; and to provide a nurturing, diverse, and inclusive environment in which our Faculty and Staff can find professional fulfillment, enjoy personal and team success, and develop careers that take them to the forefront of modern medical science and practice.

Vision: The UT Southwestern Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management will be the recognized leader in creating, developing, implementing and teaching innovative approaches to perioperative clinical care, education, and research in an ever-evolving healthcare environment. We fundamentally believe that the success of our department is inseparable from the success of our colleagues and institutions and must be achieved together. We will strive to leverage a diverse and inclusive workforce to achieve the best outcomes for our patients and their families.

COMMITTEE GOALS

The Anesthesiology and Pain Management Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Group serves to promote respect and value for every member of our department. Members represent their clinical sites and work closely with the DEI Vice-Chair to ensure that all voices are heard. The Vice-Chair works closely with the Chair and other Vice-Chairs/Directors to promote excellence in DEI with regards to clinical practice, education, research, and recruitment. This includes ensuring recruitment and support of a diverse cohort of anesthesia residents and anesthesia fellows.  We also strive to ensure that departmental policies, practices, and guidelines are grounded in the tenets of equity, justice, and inclusiveness.
