Health Equity Glossary of Terms
The AMA supports efforts to equip physicians with the consciousness, tools and resources to confront inequities and dismantle white supremacy, racism and other forms of exclusion and structural oppression. This work often requires the use of concepts and terms that are not commonly featured in medical education. This glossary provides information about key terms related to health equity. It is not a list of correct or incorrect answers. We acknowledge that definitions and concepts will evolve over time.
