Diversity & Inclusion
The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences strives to create and maintain a provider population that mirrors our diverse patient population. We believe that a diverse faculty, workforce and student body is essential to our long-term success in academic medicine. We embrace all types of diversity as strengths. We strongly encourage applications from minority candidates who are under-represented in our specialty, including women, racial and ethnic minorities and LGBTQA students.
Northwestern University does not discriminate or permit discrimination by any member of its community against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, parental status, marital status, age, disability, citizenship or veteran status in matters of admissions, employment, housing or services or in the educational programs or activities it operates.
Office of Diversity & Inclusion

Recruitment initiatives, community partnerships and campus collaborations all help facilitate our mission.

Northwestern Chicago OUT Network
The Northwestern Chicago OUT Network is a campus- and affiliate-wide networking group for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Ally (LGBTQA) faculty, staff, students, fellows and residents on the Northwestern Chicago campus. Quarterly events draw participants from the medical school, graduate school, affiliated hospitals and clinics. The network’s goal is to ensure that our campus and affiliates have welcoming and inclusive environments.
