MUSC Department of Surgery Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

The MUSC Department of Surgery is deeply committed to supporting women and underrepresented minority surgeons at all stages of their careers. We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive culture void of bias.

A recently-retracted study that had design errors with regards to conscious and unconscious bias is in conflict with our values and provides a great opportunity for us to have a broader discussion on unconscious bias, professionalism, and how to manage our image in today’s social media environment.

We stand united in our support of all genders and look forward to the day when these conversations are no longer needed.
