    Increasing Asian Inclusion in Academic Medicine and Leadership

    Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association and Building the Next Generation of Academic Physicians

    Despite being the second largest racial group among medical students, Asian individuals are underrepresented in academic faculty positions, especially within senior faculty. As medical students represent the upstream segment of the faculty pipeline, it is important to explore Asian medical students’ perceptions of facilitators and barriers to entering academic medicine careers to help elucidate Asian representation in academia. This webinar will identify resources, initiatives, and opportunities to engage Asian medical students to pursue careers in academic medicine and leadership.
