DukeMed Pride is a Duke University School of Medicine and Davison Council-funded organization. Their mission is to provide a supportive environment for sexual and gender diverse students, faculty, staff, and their allies. They further work to promote the visibility of the sexual & gender minority (SGM) community within the School of Medicine and Duke Health, and host events that facilitate education on issues relevant to SGM patients. DukeMed Pride strives to create opportunities for intersectional activism and community building.
DukeMed Pride has planned a number of events and projects, from organizing fun social events to enacting SGM patient care classes and programs for students and medical center faculty and house staff. We are also responsible for the creation of the DukeMedicine OutList, a list of healthcare professionals who voluntarily choose to be “out” about their SGM and/or Ally identities.
