Race and Medicine

Several issues concerning race and medicine have come to the forefront of conversations today. These issues have implications for improving patient care, professional training, research, and public health. Based on the NEJM Race and Medicine Points of View series, we invite you to address current experiences with race in medicine, being a minority in medicine, the importance of having diversity in medicine, and how medicine can be made more inclusive for both patients and residents alike. We will also discuss racial disparities in medicine, which have been highlighted in the current Covid-19 crisis.
