The Role of the Chief Diversity Officer in Academic Health Centers

A monograph from the Association of American Medical Colleges, in partnership with the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, examines the role of the chief diversity officer in academic health centers. The report discusses complexities and challenges associated with the chief diversity officer role; key competencies that successful chief diversity officers should possess; and a checklist for designing the role. The monograph grew out of a meeting held earlier this year with chief diversity officers and higher education leaders organized by AAMC and the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, an affilate of the AHA.
