Dr. Elisa Choi, ACP MA governor and Chair-Elect of the ACP Board of Governors, and Dr. Carole Vincent, general internal medicine specialist and founding member of the ACP MA Chapter JEDI Committee, reflect on a previous episode of The DEI Shift, Anti-racism in Healthcare Education (Season 2, Episode 3). In the previous episode, The DEI Shift Senior Producers, Dr. Maggie Kozman and Dr. DJ Gaines, interviewed Dr. Ryan Mire, ACP President-Elect, about what anti-racism means in healthcare education and how to bring about needed change in our learning and work environments.
- Being antiracist is being proactive against racism and racist ideas; in contrast, being non-racist is a passive stance.
- Beware of biological anchoring of medical concepts that lack an appropriate evidence base: race is a social construct, not a biological construct.
- Being antiracist as a general internal medicine specialist means to listen to the patient’s story without judgment or preconceived ideas or biases.
- Medical students and learners at all stages of general internal medicine specialty careers can be empowered and engaged in making change towards antiracism in medicine and healthcare education.
The conversation continues on Twitter with the #PTBGIM. For this episode, be sure to tag @theDEIShift @ACPMAChapter and @MAACPGovernor. Tell us why you’re #ProudToBeGIM and share your perspectives, experiences, or tips on how being anti-racist is essential as a general internal medicine specialist or trainee.
