Stanford Medicine REACH Initiative
The Social Justice and Health Equity (SJ&HE) Curriculum Thread was initiated in the Summer of 2020. Following the recruitment of its faculty lead, Dr. Italo Brown, its committee has been tasked with a comprehensive review of the Stanford Medical School Curriculum to identify strengths and gaps in addressing anti-racist education, health equity and other social justice issues for both our clerkship and pre-clerkship curricula. Following the review, Dr. Brown spearheaded the implementation of important reforms to the existing medical school curriculum by working with course directors, faculty, students and staff to revise the existing educational materials. Our expectation is that anti-racist education will be a permanent thread included within the Stanford Medical School Curriculum.
The Racial Equity to Advance a Community of Health (REACH) post-baccalaureate research program provides highly motivated scholars the opportunity to engage in a 1-2 year research opportunity with structured professional development and academic training components. Individuals may consider completing MCiM during their REACH research activities to provide additional curriculum pathways to foster individualized career development.

Commitment to Diversity
At Stanford, we strive to ensure that a diversity of cultures, races and ethnicities, genders, political and religious beliefs, physical and learning differences, sexual orientations and identities is thriving on our campus. Such diversity will inspire new angles of inquiry, new modes of analysis, new discoveries and new solutions.
To advance education, it is essential to be exposed to views and cultures other than one’s own and to have one’s opinions and assumptions challenged. Such engagement expands our horizons, enables understanding across difference, prevents complacency and promotes intellectual breadth.
