The American College of Emergency Physicians believes that:
- Hospitals and emergency physicians should work together to promote staffing of hospitals and their emergency departments with qualified individuals who reflect the ethnic and racial diversity in our nation; and
- Attaining diversity with well qualified physicians in emergency medicine residencies and faculties that reflects our multicultural society is a desirable goal.
