Race and racism in medicine

In this guide, find a list of resources about race and racism in medicine.


This guide is a collaborative effort.

The first list of resources was adapted from the Anti-Racism Summer Reading Program for Incoming Medical Students, compiled by Elizabeth Stein​, Alyna Khan, Andy Wen, Lee McKoin​, Mark Snowden M.D. M.P.H.​, Janelle Clauser M.D., Cicely White M.D., Heidi Combs M.D. M.S. Contact Elizabeth Stein, ​, for more information about the curriculum.

Many of these suggestions come either from catalog searches, or from many suggestions on Twitter (#MedTwitter #MedEd).

Also thanks to NYU's Tiffany E. Cook and Dr. Terri-Ann M. Bennett for their valuable suggestions.
