Education is a core component and a core value of General Internal Medicine. As medicine continues to evolve, it’s pivotal that we understand the current challenges faced by physician educators and the resources available to advocate for the integration of anti-racist practices within the many facets of medicine and medical education.

This panel discussion will bring together experts in the field and will explore anti-racist innovations in medical education, particularly as it relates to recognition and management of implicit bias, institutional promotion of health equity, and national advocacy for equitable curricular development.
