Despite educational efforts to situate healthcare disparities on the basis of race in the historical legacy of systemic racism and unequal wealth distribution, the presentation of race as a risk factor without additional context is still commonplace in our medical education didactics. Through these means the medical community continues to perpetuate the false biologic pretense of race and thus continues to be complicit in the normalization of the provision of suboptimal medical care and poor health outcomes for minority patients.
When faculty discuss race inappropriately - i.e. as a risk factor predicated on intrinsic differences between racial groups - what language can be used to reeducate the lecturer? How can we clarify the greater context of race-based healthcare disparities to the learners in attendance? What is the best venue for doing so - either “on the spot” during the lecture or within a separate, more formal curriculum?
