Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


Systemic racism affects every sector of the medical education work and learning environment, from the staff and faculty who are the backbone of every medical school, to what and how medical students are taught, who teaches them, and how they are supported and evaluated. Achieving Anti-Racism in Medical Education addresses the underlying root causes of racism in medicine and medical education-the profession's culture, values, and mental models-and offers practical, real-world strategies for transforming its white dominant culture instead of merely reacting to crises and solving discrete problems.
  • Offers a ground-breaking, five-phase approach to dismantling racism in medical education with a strategy that is broadly transformative, lifelong, people-dependent, and responsive to the world around us.
  • Offers activity-led guidance for medical education-from readiness and engagement through implementation, change management, and sustainability.
  • Provides practical tools and guidance to establish a self-sustaining cycle, including downloadable forms and worksheets.
  • Written by authors who have established a thriving anti-racism program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and eleven additional schools who have participated in their framework.
  • Includes student perspectives.
  • An outstanding resource for faculty, staff, students, administrators, and leaders in medical education, as well as those in other areas of health care who provide education and training.
  • An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures and references, with the ability to search, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud.
