Race and medical curricula

Jaya Aysola of the Perelman School of Medicine co-authored a paper that found that medical education often reinforces the idea that race is a biological category, rather than a social one. “Medical schools are training the next cadre of not only physicians that serve on the front lines, but physician scientists that are generating the medical knowledge that we’re going to use in the future,” she said. “Medical schools define the individuals that are going to define the institutional structures, policies and practices of medicine tomorrow.”
