A Train the Trainer Guide: Health Disparities Education

Date of Review: January, 2019

This is a compendium of resources compiled by SGIM in 2008 so the obvious limitation is that some of the language/frameworks are dated. I think it is useful however as it includes material that can be implemented throughout different points in residency training and the and ways to teach health disparities are easy to adapt to your program. Although some modules are outdated; this is a nice one-stop spot for a number of excellent foundational resources that can be used by educators in primary care residency programs. The most useful modules in my opinion are the first two foundations modules. The last evaluation module can give a historical perspective on evaluation and has useful items that can be used now (there haven’t been many more objective assessment tools developed to my knowledge). The main caveat here is that the clinical and community modules contain some antiquated terminology but the perspectives described are very useful even today. —Ashti Doobay-Persaud, MD, NCEAS
