Explore our Collection of Anti-Racism Curricula
As a collaborative our goal is to improve teaching and learning about social determinants in healthcare settings. Racism is a SDOH, thus we would like to highlight our Anti-Racism Curricula that has been peer reviewed and posted in our Curriculum Collection. Creating better health in every community means understanding root causes. Our resources start that conversation.
Below are just three of the many resources we have available. Visit the Curriculum Collection to view more.
This resource from MedEdPORTAL, published in 2018, was co-created by faculty and medical students to introduce first-year medical students to race and racism, discuss racism in medicine, and provide tools for students to use when encountering racism in clinical practice (CHARGE2 and INTERRUPT frameworks).
When Race Matters on the Wards: Talking About Racial Health Disparities and Racism in the Clinical Setting
This small group session, from MedEdPORTAL, introduces third-year medical students to issues of race in clinical care using case-based discussions. .
We’re creating a community for medical educators, practitioners, students, and researchers to create better health outcomes.
We study and share ways to prepare healthcare providers to address the social, cultural, economic, and other factors exert that powerful influences on health, and create disparities along racial, ethnic, and class lines. What are social determinants of health?
- Income, wealth, and social status
- Environmental exposures and our physical environment
- Education and literacy
- Personal health behaviors (e.g., exercise, diet, smoking, substance use)
- Social networks and social supports
- Social stressors (e.g., discrimination, social isolation)
- Access to care by clinicians and healthcare systems/ health insurance
We hope you’ll join our conversation, and impart it to your students, peers, and community. We can bridge this gap, and work to create better health outcomes for everyone. More about us
