Physician and patient wearing face masks

The American Medical Association (AMA) is committed to inform and educate physicians, health care professionals, health systems and communities on topics related to health equity in order to address and dismantle the root causes of inequities, including racism and other structural determinants of health. As part of this commitment, a series of CME and educational activities are now featured on the AMA Ed Hub™ Health Equity Education Center and curated by the AMA’s Center for Health Equity. These resources will equip physicians and other learners with core health equity concepts needed to support them as they continue to take action and confront health injustice.

In this episode of the Prioritizing Equity series, join practicing physicians and leaders in health care as they share how they are addressing root causes of inequity during COVID-19 and beyond–by centering equity in their workspaces and dismantling racist policies and practices.

Featured: Historical Foundations of Racism in Medicine

COVID Black education module

Racism is a root cause of health inequities—differences in health outcomes that are avoidable, unnecessary and unfair. Yet many people, including physicians, are often unaware that race is a social construct which was created with support from scientific racism. As a result, false beliefs about biological racial differences continue to shape the way that health care is practiced. This interactive module takes learners though the historical social construction of race and the obstacles racism poses for the attainment of health and wellness. This module was developed in collaboration with COVID Black.
