Structural inequality, bias, and racism are barriers to providing competent and sensitive patient care. Many training programs lack any formal education on anti-racism and equity. This talk will discuss the implementation of a formalized one-year curriculum on racism and health inequities for the division of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine (PCCSM) at the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University.
1. To discuss some of the ways race is imbeded in medical practice (eg, eGFR, FRAX, PFTs).
2. To discuss the thoughts trainees and faculty within a PCCSM division had regarding race in medicine before the formalized curriculum.
3. To discuss how a one-year curriculum on racism and health inequity was implemented.
