ISMS members: Free
Non-ISMS members: $75.00
Research shows that access to health care and the quality of care received is positively affected by having a more diverse and culturally representative physician workforce. Increasing diversity in graduate medical school programs is one step in the process to building this more inclusive workforce, but building and nurturing a diverse medical residency program can be challenging.
The program will increase attendees’ awareness of the importance of establishing and maintaining a diverse population within their medical residency programs and present strategies for building a robust and inclusive training program.
At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe why promoting a diverse and inclusive physician pipeline is important to ensuring equitable access to health care and quality patient care overall.
- Identify challenges to advancing diversity in graduate medical education programs.
- Identify and implement recommendations for programmatic and policy interventions to facilitate diversity and inclusion.
