DEI Council

In the summer of 2020, the Department of Surgery moved to expand the previous work of our Diversity Committee and formed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council. The council is led by Vice Chair V. Liana Tsikitis, M.D., M.C.R., M.B.A., and is comprised of physicians, fellows, advanced practice practitioners, residents, students, and administrative staff.
