UC Health grand rounds will focus on achieving diversity without affirmative action
On July 25, UC Health will hold a grand rounds virtual session featuring keynote speaker Erwin Chemerinsky, J.D., dean and Jesse H. Choper distinguished professor of UC Berkeley School of Law.
With a national focus on the US Supreme Court’s ruling on affirmative action, Dean Chemerinsky will provide an update on the legal landscape and his perspectives on affirmative action, which has been prohibited in the state of California since 1996 when Proposition 209 was passed.
Despite restrictions, UC Davis has one of the nation’s most diverse medical schools, ranked after Howard University, a historically Black university, and Florida International University, a Hispanic-serving research university. UC Davis School of Medicine’s Mark Henderson, M.D., vice chair for education and associate dean for admissions, and Tonya Fancher, M.D., MPH, associate dean for workforce innovation and education quality improvement, will present about the programs and practices at the school.
