U of U Diversity Requirement

One aspect of the University of Utah School of Medicine's required prerequisite coursework is a diversity course.  Their website describes this as, "One course that focuses on the culture or current circumstances of a non-dominant population group in the United States. Diversity course(s) taken to fulfill requirements of the degree granting undergraduate institution are acceptable." To help students ensure they meet that requirement, we have compiled this list of courses that will satisfy it.  If you have questions about whether courses not on this list satisfy the diversity requirement, please direct them to Yvonne who will contact the U of U Admissions Office.
