Storrs Campus
Class of 1947 Conference Room [HBL, Plaza level]

Presenter: Brendan Crow, Georgetown University School of Medicine

Closed captioning provided.

This session examines a student-led study on the use of race and ethnicity in preclinical education at Georgetown University School of Medicine (GUSOM). Information on the background, ethical dilemmas, and recent discussions on how race is currently used in medical education will be provided. Insights and lessons learned from our study will also be provided. This session will discuss the study's findings, how the findings are situated within the broader movement among US medical schools to reexamine the use of race in medicine, and ongoing efforts at GUSOM specifically to implement change within this context. This session should particularly benefit health professionals, medical students, students interested in medicine and/or medical education, those interested in reimagining a more progressive conversation around racialized health outcomes, and those who are interested in racial justice in medicine.
