Our Commitment

The Center for Practice Transformation is, at our core, about inspiring growth and change.

We create learning experiences to help individuals think deeply and critically about our practices and grow into excellence. We seek to offer space for reflection, learning, and growth while our country and world reckon with the brutal killings of Rayshard Brooks, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and others who go unacknowledged in mainstream media.

Our Center is committed to using our resources, our platform, and the access we provide to work toward meaningful and lasting change in a system of care that is built upon white privilege and power. As such, we are developing a free live-video series to give voice to the topic of racism in clinical practice and how we can take practical steps toward equity, inclusion and antiracism. Please check back or join our email list to receive updates about this upcoming series.
