Listen to a conversation between two CUIMC leaders—Anne Taylor, senior vice president for faculty affairs and career development, and Katrina Armstrong, chief executive officer of CUIMC and dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons—about diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism at the medical center.

Diversity and inclusivity are inextricably linked with excellence in every dimension of Columbia University Irving Medical Center's work. A diverse faculty facilitates culturally competent medical education and clinical care and also brings important and different perspectives to the research agenda.

For more than a decade, Anne Taylor, MD, vice dean for academic affairs at Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and senior vice president for faculty affairs and career development at CUIMC, has worked to create an academic environment that supports the success and satisfaction of all faculty in every career path. 

In this audio interview, Taylor speaks with Katrina Armstrong, MD, chief executive officer of Columbia University Irving Medical Center and dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, about CUIMC's efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive environment.
