Human Resources at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine

In support of Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine’s (Geisinger Commonwealth or GCSOM) mission, the human resources department strives to recruit and nurture a workforce dedicated to performance excellence, mutual respect, diversity and the well-being of all members of our community by establishing and supporting policies and practices that are competitive, fair, consistent and clearly communicated.

Non-discrimination

GCSOM is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community and to ensuring that activities and employment decisions are based on individuals’ abilities and qualifications.

Consistent with this principle and applicable laws, it is therefore GCSOM policy not to discriminate in offering access to its programs and activities or with respect to employment terms and conditions on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Such a policy ensures that only relevant factors are considered and that equitable and consistent standards of conduct and performance are applied.

Any inquiries regarding GCSOM non-discrimination policies should be brought to the attention of Ida L. Castro, JD, vice president for Community Engagement and chief diversity officer, at 570-504-7000.
