When Doctor Means Teacher: An Interactive Workshop on Patient-Centered Education

Date of Review: May, 2024

This curriculum, from MedEd Portal, is a four session longitudinal curriculum aims at increasing faculty, knowledge, and comfort in discussing race and racism. it comes complete with everything needed to deliver the curriculum, including slide sets, facilitator guide, breakout group, activity guide, and pre-and post tests. The curriculum is delivered in four 1-hour sessions that can be done virtually or in-person. It is suggested that the facilitators be well versed and knowledgeable in race-based discussions and curricula. Overall, this is an excellent curriculum to “train the trainer” so to speak, and helps build faculty knowledge and confidence discussing race with trainees and patients. –Ashley Smith-Nunez, MD, NCEAS
