The webinar, "Integrating health equity into graduate medical education," is sponsored by the Academic Physicians Section and the Young Physicians Section. The webinar will focus on the need for improved health equity in the U.S. health care system, and the ways in which graduate medical education (GME) can serve to meet these needs, both now and in the future.
After the session, learners will be able to:
- Define the terms “health equity,” “health disparities,” “diversity/inclusion,” and “cultural competence”
- Explain how the AMA’s work in both undergraduate and graduate medical education translates into action on health equity
- Describe how the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and Ohio State University are working to promote health equity
- Identify ways in which the AMA, ACGME, and academic medical centers can work together to improve health equity
