HWCOM is committed to diversity in its student body and faculty, as well as to diversity in medical practitioners of tomorrow, because of this they have initiated a number of pipeline programs such as: the Florida Science Training and Research Fellowship Program, Doctors of Tomorrow, and the Premedical Undergraduate Mentoring Program.
University of South Florida Morsanl College of Medicine (MCOM) has created a curricular thread integrated into all four years of training called Humanism in Action. This curriculum involves teaching students the communication skills necessary to elicit the values of their patients and then integrate those values into the medical plan for the patient. The students understanding of their patients' values and culture improves the students' ability to respect and reflect their patients' values and culture in the medical care they are providing.
