Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine
Key Outcomes:
-Medical students and residents recognize the impact of DEI events during medical training on their care of diverse patient populations. -However there seems to be a decrease in interest in DEI activities on the residency level. -Medical schools and residency programs must continue to more patient-focused DEI events throughout and beyond medical training. -Trainees and faculty together must be involved in the planning and execution of DEI events to ensure maximum impact.
