Throughout the year, RUSH Medical college hosts events to help foster a culture of respect and celebrate a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
Hosted annually by RUSH University, students, faculty and staff honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day of service throughout the Chicago community.
The dedication our students, faculty and staff have for health equity goes beyond the classroom. Watch how they honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this year by volunteering across Chicago and holding activities on campus.
Second Look Day
Each spring, the RUSH Medical College admissions and recruitment team invites admitted and waitlisted students who are underrepresented in medicine (URM) to a special event to take another look at RUSH Medical College. This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about RUSH's diversity and inclusion mission, network with current URM students and faculty, as well as meet and interact with your future classmates.
Graduate Medical Education
The Graduate Medical Education (GME) virtual showcase is an excellent opportunity for prospective residents to learn about our diversity, equity, and inclusion mission from GME leaders and others at RUSH. The event is also an opportunity to learn more in depth about our residency programs, community engagement and facilities.
Diversity at RUSH: A Conversation with Residents
Do you have questions that were not answered during your virtual interview? GME hosts an annual Conversation with Residents to provide applicants an opportunity to further speak with current house staff across specialties in a resident-led Q&A program to discuss community service, wellness, health equity, life in Chicago and the House Staff Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.
