COMSEP DEI Statement 

The Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics (COMSEP) recognizes and acknowledges the longstanding negative impacts of bias, inequities, overt and subtle discrimination, and racism on medical education and healthcare. As pediatric medical educators, we continue to see the impact of these factors on medical learners, faculty, and administrative staff, particularly those related to race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, and disability. COMSEP is committed to dismantling the systems that perpetuate and promote disparities within medical education and patient care. As an organization, we are dedicated to continually educating ourselves and others and promoting the creation of equitable and inclusive learning environments.
