Health Equity and Community Engagement

Our Fort Worth EM Health Equity and Community Engagement Mission Statement

The Fort Worth Emergency Medicine Residency Program is committed to the pursuit of excellence in supporting our patients, residents, fellows, faculty, and staff. In efforts to advance this pursuit, we are committed to Health Equity and Community Engagement. We must be knowledgeable about the engagement of the community we serve, more deliberate about creating and maintaining diversity in our spaces, and consistent in our pursuit of equity.

The Fort Worth Emergency Medicine Residency Program is comprised of individuals representing different abilities, ages, ethnicities, gender identities, nationalities, races, religions, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic statuses. We recognize the opportunity and responsibility to celebrate and embrace this diversity amongst ourselves and our patient population. This diversity strengthens our ability to provide the highest level of health care for our patients and foster a welcoming work environment for our staff. The success of our efforts around health equity and community engagement requires the effort of each individual associated with the program to learn and participate in this growth.

This is the present and future of The Fort Worth Emergency Medicine Residency Program.

Program Goals

Promote health equity and community engagement within the Fort Worth EM Residency Program in order to:

  1. Increase knowledge of social determinants of health.
  2. Improve culturally sensitive patient care.
  3. Cultivate a welcoming work environment for all.
