Racism in Medicine and Healthcare

For University of Arizona College of Medicine- Tucson


Racism in Medicine and Healthcare

This guide is intended to be a resource and introduction to the intersection of racism and healthcare. This guide is an entry point for discussions about creating more equitable health outcomes, which starts with education and awareness. We hope this guide helps students and faculty reimagine what a medical education could look like, and what medical practice will look like, as students look towards the future of medicine.
