Have you put time in to educate yourself about anti-racism in education, and are you looking for next steps to implement change? This presentation brings together experts from five institutions, on behalf of the Society of General Internal Medicine Education Committee, to discuss historical and current manifestations of structural racism in medical education. Additionally, they will outline organizational strategies within 4 broad areas of impact to promote racial justice and equity – furthering anti-racist curricula, learner support and academic environment, educational policy and professional culture – and identify concrete steps that we as teachers, education researchers and education leaders can adopt to support an anti-racist mission.

After this session, participants will be able to:

Define structural racism
Identify historical and current manifestations of structural racism within institutions of medical education
Employ a multidimensional strategy to combat systemic racism
Advocate at the local level for institutional commitment and organizational policy changes
