Beyond the White Coat

Times are changing, and along with it, academic medicine must change, too. The Beyond the White Coat series dives into issues affecting the academic medicine community at-large, including how we have adapted due to the global pandemic, and how the community is coming together to address racism head-on.

Racism Under the Microscope

We’ve known for a long time that systemic racism influences the social determinants of health — affecting, quite literally, who in this country survives and who suffers. People who live in poorer neighborhoods often receive lower quality and less care from health care providers. And long-standing discrimination against all marginalized communities has created dramatic health inequities. David J. Skorton, MD, looks back at some of the conversations we had about these very difficult and persistent issues this past season on “Beyond the White Coat.”
