Dismantling racism in healthcare demands a concerted effort on many fronts because of the downstream effects on patient health and health equity. A key component is medical education that promotes racial justice. This begins with the acknowledgement and recognition that racism is embedded in healthcare, history of medicine, and modern practice.  

Our 5-Minute Moment for Racial Justice curriculum teaches how racism and implicit bias affect routine care, and how we, as healthcare professionals, may unknowingly propagate health disparities. Our goal is for it to be a high-impact resource for learners and educators to normalize conversations around race and racism in medicine. We offer actionable steps for health equity.    

Anti-racism in medicine takes intentionality, consistency, and effort.  

We invite you on this journey with us. 

Thank you for your courage.
