Dr. Ricardo Correa, an endocrinology specialty physician in the Arizona Chapter of ACP, Chair-Elect Designee of the ACP Council of Early Career Physicians, and Associate Editor of SGIM Forum, and Dr. Priya Radhakrishnan, Chief Academic Officer and Vice President of Health Equity at HonorHealth, governor of ACP Arizona chapter, and Governor-Elect Designee of the ACP Board of Governors, reflect on the topic of a previous episode of The DEI Shift: the minority tax (Season 2, Episode 1) and its relevance for generalist physicians and trainees. In the earlier episode, The DEI Shift Senior Producers, Branden Barger and Dr. DJ Gaines, talked with Evolve Benton about the minority tax and the negative effects it can have on well-being.
- The gratitude tax is a feeling of obligation that underrepresented minorities in medicine (URMM) faculty have to an academic institution and to future generations of URMMs for being given the opportunity to be a physician.
- Academic leaders can provide appropriate incentives for academic faculty to participate in internal (e.g., committee) service to mitigate the minority tax and gratitude tax.
- Scholarly work can take a variety of forms and can be recognized to give voice to URMMs. This can include writing and publishing in professional society newsletters, invited commentaries in journals, and op-eds, or engaging in advocacy work in media or other platforms.
- Affinity groups can offer an opportunity to promote advocacy, advancement, and education towards diversifying the internal medicine pipeline.
