  • Prioritizing Health Disparities in Medical Education to Improve Care

    Tuesday, October 2, 2012 | 8:15 AM - 5:15 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, the Associated Medical Schools of New York, the New York University School of Medicine, and the New York Academy of Sciences

    Reducing inequities in healthcare will require broadening medical training to include health disparities education and research beyond the current focus on race and ethnicity to consider determinants such as socioeconomic status, environmental conditions, gender identity, sexual orientation, behavioral choices, and access to medical care.

    This conference will convene representatives from medical schools that have incorporated emerging health disparities themes into their curricula to discuss three major themes:

    1. Innovative teaching models for incorporating health disparities research into the curriculum while emphasizing the role of physicians in preserving health
    2. How to attract medical trainees to health disparities research
    3. Improving the recruitment of underrepresented minority medical students with a health disparities curriculum

    A panel discussion organized in collaboration with the New York Academy of Sciences' Science Alliance program will allow medical students to discuss their own experiences and recommendations to further improve student training.

    *Reception to follow.
