tEACH forum webinar – Black lives matter

Based on a student symposium Gozie Offiah will present this webinar on

Black lives matter – Addressing racism within the medical school curriculum 

Racism, microaggressions and implicit bias within healthcare communication and medical education influences many aspects of student experiences and often appear in covert and institutional forms. These shared experiences reflect a common problem faced by ethnic minority medical students. How can these issues be addressed by institutions and by educators?
