Extra Resources

MedEdPORTAL, the open-access journal of the AAMC, has created a collection of resources to provide educators with practice-based, peer-reviewed content to teach anti-racist knowledge and clinical skills and elevate the educational scholarship of anti-racist curricula. The new resources will support a community of collaborators dedicated to the elimination of racism in medical education.
