Diversity at Mercer
At Mercer University School of Medicine, we aim to build a holistic learning environment dedicated to diversity and inclusion in an evolving global society. To do our part, we offer a variety of resources to help support students of varying backgrounds and life experiences. These resources include:
- Academic Counseling
- Career Counseling
- Financial Counseling
- Training Workshops

Our medical library provides resources, case studies, and articles on diverse topics such as bruising on different skin tones, transgender issues, and health equity.
Underrepresented students can be paired with a clinical or preclinical professional mentor who provides support and answers questions during the graduate school journey.
The diversity in medicine interest group and its affiliate groups work in partnership with the School's URiM department to educate students, faculty, and staff on being inclusive and culturally aware.
Underrepresented students have access to a dedicated campus URiM director for private discussions and mental and emotional check-ins from fellow URiM students.
Meet Our Diversity Team
The School’s Chief Diversity Officer works with Mercer University’s Diversity and Inclusion Officer to organize lectures and events to facilitate cultural awareness. A dedicated underrepresented in medicine director is located on each campus to ensure students receive the support and resources necessary to succeed in medical school and beyond.
